My review

The Good:

I'd have to say the best things about Boston University are the academics and the location. I love being in the center of the city and I couldn't ask for better, more interesting classes.

The Bad:

Its location may be great, but its campus is not! Our dorms are pretty awful, our campus is spread out along Comm Ave and we just lack general cohesiveness within the campus.

Would I do it again?

Yes, For me, college is about academics and the opportunities I'll have when I graduate - BU has given me an excellent range of opportunities and academic challenges.
