Just a few thoughts if you guys are going to attend BU in the fall. EXCEL isn't worth the money, and you can always make friends throughout the year, and will have time too to get to know the city later. Don't feel pressured to attend EXCEL unless you are extremely nervous, which you shouldn't be at all about starting school in the fall. Save that money, it will be very handy once you realize how much money you have to borrow to pay for tuition at BU.Radioheadblue said:A lot of people say that the South End(where the BUdschool is) isn't the best place to walk alone at night, but I think that holds true to most areas of cities.
I wouldnt worry too much about that, I'm just going to try to live within a reasonable distance to the school, say 15 minute walk, or easy bus ride, possibly in the Back bay or Fenway/Symphony area.
