Very nice program. Communication sometimes bad, usually on the instructor's part not the schools.

BU is an amazing school with diverse interests that really expand your world of thinking. Professors are well respected in their fields and there are many opportunities to get hands on experience in topics that interest you.

College is a great time to explore academics interests, mature, and to build the skills you will need for the rest of your life. At the same time, there is still a lot of learning to be done after graduation and you can always change your path post graduation. College is an important time, but it is not the MOST important time.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2013

While great for working professionals, I honestly thought my program was part of a degree mill. If you need a MS to advance your career, this could be a good option for you - but only if your employer is paying for most of it.
