This School sucks. I was taking an online class at Boston University (CS 200 Introduction to Information Technology) and the professors were very rude, also, professors,don't have much experience when it comes to teaching. The class online was very poor the professor didn't know the answers to some of the questions. It sounded as the professor was just reading the book. The books that there were using were full of errors,

I graduated At University Of Massachusetts and it was not like this at all. posted Feb 7th, 2019 1:50 pm

Just started with BU MET and so far I have been very pleased with my experience. Not sure what it was like a few years ago when some of the negative reviews were left. I would encourage people to think about the fact that there are bad professors or classes no matter where you go. Also, regarding the difficulty of the program, BU is a highly respected research university, and the programs are graduate level, so be realistic about what you are signing up for when you decide to pursue graduate studies. I am grateful to be challenged and have to apply myself in order to finish strong. I don't expect them to simply hand over my diploma without working for it. TLDR: Would I do it again? Absolutely.

Hope this helps someone in the future. posted Oct 14th, 2018 8:08 pm



Full time professors at their CIS program are good and helpful. Their part-time professors are hit-or-miss. Some of these part-time teachers changed live classrooms from regular schedules to irregular schedules whenever. Grading was tough and a bit unfair. They ignored the fact that people were full-time working adults who were back to college after 10+ years. posted Dec 21st, 2016 12:46 am

Overrated university, expensive, unhelpful and rude staff and director, overrated level of education (can get better professors in less expensive universities), and program director is only interested in earning lots of money off of students. posted Jan 30th, 2014 3:22 pm

BU is a very bad investment to go into. The director and staff are unhelpful, only interested in earning money off of students, and very rude. The professors are also not good and classes are very expensive, more than they are worth. One of my professors only gave us crossword puzzles to work on and did not at all provide us with any lectures. The cost was 800 dollars per a two credit course. The other professor skipped five days of lectures and had us take his class online. The cost of his class was 1600 dollars per four credits. The director is very unprofessional and only interested in getting students to spend lots of money on classes. My advice to you: keep your money and spend it to make a business or at a cheaper school. BU Met is overrated. posted Jan 30th, 2014 3:16 pm
