When attending Curry, I was first shy and isolated myself from people, meaning I wouldn't really talk to anyone unless it was required for group projects or assignments or a presentation. Later, I met people who I can call friends that have made my year at Curry fun and interesting. Academic wise, I struggled first semester as I was new and was still try to find my way around the campus even though I didn't live there. Second semester was when I decided to work hard and stop slacking even though I was just in my first year. I was told that it was okay to have fun in the beginning but still finish strong at the end and that is what I have been doing.

I would only recommend Curry if: 1. you are choosing nursing as your major & 2. if you are financially able to pay Curry's tuition (scholarships/grants that cover a MAJOR chunk of Curry's tuition for the next 4 years). I was an out-of-state undergrad in the nursing program and honestly wish I did more on Curry before deciding to go there four 4 years. The kids that go there are VERY cliquey and entitled, making it hard to branch out and make new friends once everyone has formed their own friend groups. The party scene is non-existent (especially if you're under 21 & can't get into bars in Boston). The amount you have to pay in tuition is without a doubt NOT worth spending four years as a full time student at Curry. The only thing that I liked about Curry was that their nursing program is excellent & had the opportunity to attend clinicals at Boston hospitals under the best clinical instructors.
They are great. It was a straightforward process and the schools organization made it that much easier. They are great.
