Campus Visit Notes for Boston College


Visit Description:

Personally, I was a bit put off by the religious affiliation of the school, which was obvious throughout the tour and info session, as well as the large presence of student athletes. A religious or athletic student would obviously find it a great fit, but being neither of those things, it didn't quite seem like my social scene.

Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):

You can take the T from boston or park in a garage on campus.
