    BU is a very reputable school. Specifically, I am in the Questrom School of Business and I feel like they prepare you very well for the real-world. It helps to know that you're not wasting your time and breaking your back studying for nothing. The relevance of what I'm being taught makes me want to understand the material more because I know that I'll actually be using it. I still don't think that any university should be $50k+ a year but that's a different story for a different day. I'm here and I love it. Even with the thousands of students here, I still feel like I'm cared for on an individual level. We have it better than a lot of other schools, so I feel like the complaints should be kept to a minimum. It's all about perspective. I'm very happy to be here. read full review
