Yup! Exactly! :)

It’s superduper close. (I had to look up “Center for Student Services” because I know it as 100 Bay State Road or Marciano.) But it’s probably five minutes away, if not less. :)
In 2013, the acceptance rate was 37%. So about 4 in 10 applicants get in.
Personally I believe it’s getting more difficult to get in because the quality and caliber of applicants is increasing, as well as the number of applicants!
But don’t be discouraged, and work hard! :)
I would recommend reading this article.
It’s a little dated, but worth it.
Also, I think part of the struggle for students is coming to BU and being challenged. It’s much different than high school, and there are more things to balance.
Nope, same one, no matter how (un)attractive. :)
Yes, I don’t think there would be a problem with that!
Not really, but you can always find a party if you want one.
Ehhh….that’s pretty early; I would say give it fifteen/twenty minutes the first day, and then you can whittle it down as appropriate.
You also want to take into account how your professor reacts to late-comers…can you risk being late? That’s something you’ll learn in the first few days.
Thank you! I hope the person who asked sees this!
I completely understand your concerns! But I think you should apply!
And BU even understands! From their website:
"We get it. The total cost of a world-class education—the kind you can get at Boston University—is substantial. That’s why we award over $162 million in need-based aid to enrolled undergraduates every year."
They have a lot of scholarships (merit AND need-based), and you can get grants and loans, AND work-study!
Start looking into scholarships and deadlines now, and you’ll be more prepared, no matter where you end up! :)
Yes!! Just talk to your advisor about it, and they can definitely help you!
…I don’t think so! Sorry.
No, but I’m posting this so that hopefully someone answers! :)
You could try calling Housing and asking!
I also like slugbooks.com, which allows you to compare textbook prices between ten different sites!
You find out the first day of class. SURPRISE!
Kidding, check your BU email and any of the websites associated with your class. Also join the Facebook groups of your classes; they can be helpful.
