Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

I absolutely loved the graduate program I was enrolled in at Boston University! There was a heavy workload, but as long as you managed your time well, you would be fine. I also enjoyed studying abroad through my program, and I am so grateful for that. There was also a great amount of support from professors and other faculty members.

It is difficult with some classes because it is an online program...for example statistics is difficult without teacher.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

The practicum component of the MPH program allows students hands-on experience outside of the classroom. Faculty at BU School of Public Health are committed to their students, and are always available to discuss academics as well as professional goals.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I am a first year graduate student in the School of Public Health and I am pleased with my decision to attend Boston University to pursue my Master's degree. The program includes a core curriculum in which you can get a sense of the many different aspects of public health such as health law, epidemilogy, and biostatistics to name a few. The courses are meant to provide a broad overview of the subject matter which certainly enhances the overall quality of the program. Additionally, the city of Boston is a great place to be if you are interested in health care--there are countless oppotunities for internships and jobs in the field. I could not be happier that I chose BU and would recommend the Public Health program to anyone who wishes to pursue a career in the health sector.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

I really do like my school and it's pretty competitively priced for other law schools. However, there are some pretty heavy cons. The cost of living in Boston is exorbitant - everything is expensive. Additionally, while Boston University is an excellent tier-1 law school, we do suffer for having Harvard Law just across the river. But if you're prepared to shoulder that burden, our faculty is amazing and we've just broken ground on a new addition to our law building that promises to be amazing!

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Many active student groups and social events. The BU Law alumni network is strong in the Boston area but the Career Development Office has weaker connections outside Boston and New York. As a whole, the professors are fabulous, approachable, and available. Ethnic diversity is low, LGBT diversity is high. There is somewhat greater diversity at BU than at other law schools, so the low diversity may reflect more on the legal field as a whole than on BU's application process. Boston itself is a wonderful city with lots to do, especially in the summer.
