Congratulations to Boston University’s (potential) Class of 2016! BU’s current admission rate – at 45.5% – is the lowest in university history. As expected, the class of 2016 will be a diverse bunch, with 103 different countries represented amongst the bunch of international applicants.
But the upcoming choice–to BU or not BU?–can be daunting for some. Whether you’ve already stamped your car with a shiny BU bumper sticker or are still weighing your options, the Quad has the resources you need to sway you in the right direction (that is, towards Boston) or plan for the best four years of your life.
Let’s face it, being a freshman is hard. The Quad has written some blogs and articles in the past that are aimed at overcoming being a newb at Boston University, including cool clubs to join, the best places to live, and even how to get down and dirty at FitRec.
