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.

Boston University is known by everyone else in the city as the clueless snob school. Not even snobs, I don't want to be harsh. Sometimes when I'm on the train (B-line), I have a strong urge to tap someone on the shoulder and ask them to grow up or leave my city!
Most people who are actually from Boston don't like Boston University students. Boston College is OK. MassArt is better. Berklee, all the schools off the E-line Train, D-line, Red Line are nice. UMASS Boston and Amherst are always acceptable.

Located in Allston, Masachusetts.

Includes several academic subdivisions such as the College of General Studies and School of Hospitality Administration.

Accepts the majority of high school students who apply for admission (57%, according to Peterson's).

Has one high profile athletic team, men's ice hockey, which recently lost to Boston College 5-0 in a season-ending NCAA tournament game.
Boston University student: "Wow, that was a rough day of hotel management classes in the School of Hospitality Administration. If I can dodge the traffic and trolley on Commonwealth Avenue safely, I'll go back to my dorm in Warren Towers and think about how glad I am that I was accepted to BU along with most of the other applicants. Maybe I'll relax by reading about how the hockey team lost 5-0 to Boston College last week."

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."
