A top American university that is consistently in the nations top 50. Beautiful new buildings, top staff, and excellent athletics all around. Unfortunately, BU has decided that instead of academic selectivity(you know based on stupid stuff like grades) they prefer financial barriers. They achieve this through outrageous tuition and terrible to non existent financial aid packages.

Sure there are a few bright bulbs who picked full boats to BU over full price at an Ivy and a couple of choice athletes, but overall BU students are from a very small demographic: New England elite illiterates. The typical BU male works out at the gym for 3 minutes a day and begins/ends every sentence with either a 'bro' or a 'yaw dude.' Your typical female schedules her classes around her Darque Tan appointments for the that month and goes out with one of the aforementioned yah dudes or broskis. These prada and ambercrombie wearing morons crowd onto the B line every day and yammer on their cellphones about that nights lame party in a way that lets everyone on the train know that they are the coolest kid in town. Once you get past the three BU stops the decibel level on the train drops by a factor of ten, a wave of sighs let off, and all the babies on board stop crying. It sux to BU.

BU Student: Yah dude, so I decided to go to Boston University kid.
Me: Oh yeah? Where else did you get into?
BU Student: ...My dad has a yacht.
Me: That's nice.

Private university established for the children of isanely wealthy parents who could not swindle their way into ivy league schools. A haven for coke addicts, future female eating disordered models, paris-hilton wannabes, alcoholics aspiring to obtain a degree in business so they can take over daddy's, and ugly men that could never get laid at a school that didn't have a 7:3 ratio of girls to guys.
Is Boston University better than BC? Of course it is, the students are richer, stupider, and more prone to drug addiction.
The school with filthy rich kids. The students love to wear gucci and prada. They roll around Boston in their exotic cars and do cocaine. They have no academic motivation because they got rejected from all other schools and they will just get their degree in business. Eventually they will take over daddy's and continue to make millions or even billions if they happen to be part of that jet set royalty middle eastern crowd.
Jason must go to Boston University because his parents are filthy rich, he drive a bentley, wears prada and does cocaine. He sure as hell doesn't care about academics.

NYU and BC rejects. Both schools have much lower acceptance rates than BU, are recognized as more prestigious, and get more individual persons into good graduate programs, which is sad since BC is a fraction of the size of BU. Recognized nationally in sciences and math as much less prestitious and difficult than Harvard, MIT, Tufts, and BC.
The Wall Street Journal ranks numerous schools-- sometimes schools with less than 10% of BU's student body-- higher than Boston University in terms of ability to get kids into good medical, law, and graduate programs. See Wall Street Journal Feeder school rankings.

A university in Massachusetts that considers itself a rival of Boston College. It's not.
"Dude, isn't Boston University better than Boston College?"

A school that has a shameless inferiority complex towards Boston College. They are also known for having an exceptional football program. Their hockey team fucks BC girls, as that is the closest they will ever get to a National Title.
BU Student: "I didn't get into Boston College, so I went to Boston University. I wish BU was a 3 sport school, academically superior, and had a hotter student body. I also wish I wasn't a hater."
