Wow, I quit my Catholic education after high school, but I guess it's slightly comforting to know that so many Catholic students continue to be hatemongers even at the university level. There are 16,000 undergraduates at BU, and lest we forget, my children of God, that they come in many different flavors. Sure, there are some who bought their way into BU, but do you really mean to tell me those people don't exist at BC? We know that many of the (slightly overweight) rich girls who attend our school like to show off their camel toe in their (slightly too small) Juicy Couture jumpsuits, but how about scratching below the surface before you stereotype all of us?
Students at Boston University are often stereotyped as rich slackers from wealthy suburbs who bought their way into school, when in fact a sizable portion of them come from lower middle class families and places like rural Pennsylvania and choose BU because of its top rate education, generous financial aid, and tolerance for different personalities and lifestyles.
