BC Law is a great school. Your hard work will pay off. The professors are fantastic and really care about their students. The professors have an open door policy which is always helpful. Finally, the school's alumni network is bar none. Faculty will even put you in contact with alumni.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

Boston College is one of the best universities in the country and it has a huge network that students can tap into. Boston College and its alumni takes care of its own. This school does lack in diversity, which as a person of color tended to take a toll on me, but I am still glad that I went to this institution. The Lynch School of Education is also one of the best schools of education in the country. I particularly enjoyed my program because I got to design my program.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Boston College is a great school to get a quality education that is impressive and alluring to graduate schools and business organizations who want to hire professional and intelligent employees. Professors are top-notch and the campus has developing resources to guide students in their path to success.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2017

I am a math and computer science major going into the masters in accounting program, with the hope of one day being an investment banker or venture capitalist. I consider myself a rationalist and a free thinker who can applicably use these skills to succeed in the business world.
3.4 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2009

Boston College was a good school; however, there were times I felt that because I was only a Masters student, I was overlooked in favor of the PhD students. Also, there were multiple instances were the school accepted people into a program with a focus that it was unable to provide appropriate classes for.
2.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2007

Over priced. Mostly taught by doctorate students. Would have preferred more real life experience and down to earth teachers who weren't just teachers but practices.
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2011

BC is a beautiful school with sound academics, but I would prefer for it to become more progressive like many other Jesuit institutions.
