I finally changed the layout. It’s still ugly, but it’s less ugly. I’ll be changing it again later when I’m not as lazy. You guys are awesome and should submit your suggestions in the meantime. Thanks. :)
CAS is great, but it really depends on what program you’re considering. I don’t know much about NYU, but everyone jokes that BU is where you go if you can’t get into NYU. That’s not necessarily true—I know several people who turned down NYU to come here. If you have a specific major in mind, check out the reputation of it at both schools. I don’t know, I obviously love BU, so I’m going to tell you we’re better. :)
So many people are sending in their experiences with grade deflation or lack thereof. I don’t want to post them all, but basically I’m getting mixed answers about people’s experiences. So, like everything else at BU, it differs among schools and classes and majors.
Also, in response to one comment, I don’t think the physics averages are gay. Unless, you know, one C+ is having intercourse with another C+ of the same gender. And if that’s the case, that’s cool.
Last summer I used StudentLS. It’s a pretty good deal for both storage and shipping. I definitely recommend them. Anyone else know of any other good options?
I’ve never experienced grade deflation. All my grades at BU have reflected how much work I put into my classes. I’m not in math or science, though, and I’ve heard grade deflation has been more of an issue in those areas.
