Boston College Reviews
My time at Boston College changed my life. Not only did the university provide me with a world class liberal arts education, it also formed me as a person. Social justice and civic responsibility were two recurrent themes in many of my classes, and the student body was very active in volunteer work and pursuing their passions. In short, Boston College is one of the most inspirational places I've ever been a part of!
Boston College is an institution that I believe would be a perfect fit for me athletically and academically. Throughout my high school career, I have worked to build up my confidence and independence in order to prepare myself for college. This college will help me develop these assets further. Academically, I know the university will be the perfect fit for me to pursue my career in physical therapy. The research I have done has shown that the faculty and staff are extremely inviting and the desire for students to be engaged in discussions in class is contagious, which is something that will guide me towards success. I am determined to occupy myself with different activities that I not only find interesting but will also better me as a person and strengthen my confidence. One particular activity would be soccer because I have been a part of a soccer team since age five and it holds a special place in my heart.
Currently as a junior, I think that the culture of this university does not particularly mesh well with me. The students at the school seem all quite similar (Type-A, super competitive, and somewhat superficial). There just seems to be an aura of politics within the campus that makes me uncomfortable. The facilities and the academics are great though!
