Help me decide between the two

Very different. Babson is consistently ranked at the top for entreprenuers (excuse the spelling); BU is generally a good school but is not a business school.

Babson is much smaller, out in the suburbs (about 30 min from Boston), and has a lovely campus. BU is huge - about 30,000 students - and in the middle of Boston without much of a campus. The two environments are very different.

If you are dead-set on business, I would recommend Babson. If there is any chance that you will want a different major, then go for BU.

Babson. And please, PLEASE, stop asking the same damn question. Babson is a great business school, much better than BU. The sad part is you are already WELL aware of that and are simply looking for more people to tell you so. Go with Babson, you wont go wrong. I ask you again to end these damn identical posts.

vulcano, i think ur the crankiest person on this board all i read from u is mad remarks.

Babson is better, I got waitlisted there, but I've heard its very cliquey (sp?) and competitive, meaning there are lots of people that are willing to just crush u. It has a great entrepeneur program though.

Another problem might be location, cuz unless u have a car ur stuck there. BU is a big school, and if ur not 100% sure you want business go to BU period.

I'm sorry, but Vulcano is DEAD ON. I've been saying the same thing for weeks.

vulcano is not cranky... the op makes a 3 new posts a day on simlilar subjects... babson or xyz

look at another post he created no more than a few hours ago "Babson and Wake Forest workload?"

I ask the moderator to step in and limit enarang's babson tainted posts to the individual schools fourm designated for babson

thank you

The business school crowd is hard to please. Quite a few posters, known for repetitive posts, are now on the other side. However, I agree that the multiple posts about Babson have reached a natural limit.

Wow, Scubasteve. I was gonna try to do the same thing actually, but i had no idea there were THAT many. Enarang doesn't seem like a bad guy, he just talks about Babson too much!
