Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that the Boston College Graduate School of Social Work is an incredible track that very well prepares their students to become forward-thinking and well rounded social workers. This program, along with my work experience, has helped me obtain an extremely competitive internship working in domestic violence and sexual assault. The quality of education that I am receiving at Boston College is absolutely superb and feel extremely fortunate to be part of such an amazing learning institution. The one negative aspect of the graduate program is that classes fill up very quickly due to the archaic class registration system.

Boston College hires excellent professors and the MSA program is very small. BC has access to great resources and is a prime location for recruiting in the Northeast.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The Connell Graduate School of Nursing at Boston College is one of the top 25 graduate nursing programs in the country. The program prepares you to be a leader in the healthcare industry and does so through classroom and clinical hours. Professors are always available to answer questions and assist students. These professors are the top in their field and complete numerous research projects. Students will be cared for and challenged at BC and the CSON.

The experience at Boston College can very. However, the core faculty are all wonderful, and most of the classes are focused on preparing students to excel in real world counseling settings.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

Boston College is a highly ranked school for social work. While I did not attend for an undergraduate program, my experience with the graduate school of social work has been very rewarding. Like with most graduate programs you have to consider what is right for you. I enjoy BCs proximity to the city. I also appreciate that it still maintains a intimate community feel because of the underlying ideals of community and service. Also, the admissions staff were wonderful and accommodating--which makes a difference during the application process. Cons include the cost of living in Boston and the limited financial aid for graduate students in the social work program.
