BU taught me more than content. In the city of Boston, I was exposed to different cultures and races. The work load was heavy but I was dedicated to earning good grades and the professors were always helpful.

Boston University is a large place; I was in the science journalism masters program, which is quite small and insular. The academic level was OK.
