Campus Tour: Yes - Very helpful. It was nice that they used a microphone so everyone could hear. However, because of the size of the campus, it was impossible to see everything.

Campus Visit Notes for Boston University
The location was beautiful, but that's the point--it was in Boston. It seemed like all the best things about BU were that it was in Boston. Along the tour, I sometimes wondered if it just felt like a four year vacation in Boston, but with some classes thrown in.
It also seemed like a very big campus with a lot of people, where I felt like I wouldn't really have my own identity. However, everyone seemed very open and friendly, so it wouldn't be hard to find your niche.
My tour was very fun, considering it is such a long walk down a long campus. The guide was interactive and funny, and at one point, made us all stop at the "earthquake" machine to see how big an earthquake we could make. This made me feel good about the school, because it showed me that the students know how to have fun, and it definitely wouldn't be a boring experience.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Parking is terrible, but it's Boston, so that's expected. However, public transportation more than makes up for it. The T is easy to use and can take you anywhere you want to go.
