Could somebody please provide me with a comprehensive explanation of the College of General Studies at Boston University?
I plan on applying to BU's College of Communication, but I'm not very confident in my credentials. However, now that I've seen the "Class Profile" of the College of General Studies, which I find significantly more comforting to me, I'm considering just applying to the CGS instead. This leads me into my main question...
If a student applies to a specific college at BU other than CGS, (like CAS, COM, etc) and is rejected, but would have been accepted to CGS if they had applied there instead, will they be offered admissions to CGS for sure, or only in some cases?
When you attend CGS, are you asked to declare a major right away? As a CGS student, is your course schedule different in any way? And finally, as a standard question that I ask most people at any university, do you have any grievances or complaints with the CGS or the guidance therein?
your course schedule is not that different it is just "prestructured" for you..everyone in cgs has to select a variety of premade block schedules made up of four courses for freshman year (rhetoric, natural science, social science, humanities)..your second semester of freshman year your start taking elective class outside of CGS..you do not have to declare a major..but usually students who know what they want to do start taking electives towards their major's requirements
so my question is the same as someone above. i really want to apply to CAS but im afraid that i wont get in witha 3.6 Gpa however my ec's, recs and essays i think will make up for it but i still am worried. so the question i ask is if i apply to CAS and am rejected do i get offered a spot at CGS?
