Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology Reviews
Benjamin Franklin Institute is a small school of Engineering and technical skills. The Academic staff is very helpful and encouraging. The school invests in minorities who comes from poor backgrounds. "No one gets left behind" is their motto. The school provides all the tools and support necessary for the students to feel accepted and apart of a community. The school was built on a module of fairness and equality by Benjamin Franklin. The school is not very big, but it is organized and its staff are well trained and informed. The professors hold accomplishments of PhD and MD's in their field of expertise. In the technical areas, most teachers have 10+ years of experience in their field of expertise. The school equipment is kept up to date and in good condition. The bathrooms are clean and trash is disposed of accordingly. It is a peaceful and subtle area to learn.
Despite the school's want for new students they did not take the credits i earned at UMASS Boston, a state school in the immediate area. This was around 20 credits of general education that would have enabled me to graduate about a semester sooner. The registrar was very unclear about why the credits wouldn't transfer but ultimately said that my general education didn't have an equivalent at this new school BFIT. I seriously debated staying at this school after hearing that.
It is a challenging school all around, however it is rewarding to know that you worked hard to do your best. You really need to stay on top of things to do well, otherwise you'll fall behind quickly. Hard work and dedication are required, just like any other college.
