    take ap's if your school has them! you're not required to have straight a's to get in. try the sat and act once each, then compare composite scores and retake the one you did better on. (you will usually find one is easier for you, and the other isn't worth stressing about.) do well in school, work hard on your application, be thoughtful in writing your essays and get strong letters of rec. the first semester of senior year does matter so try!!! there are lots of schools in boston, so talk about why you like bu, not just the city. good luck :-) read full review
