BU VS RICE (TRANSFER)

Hey y'all!

I need help making a decision. I am a transfer student who applied to BU and Rice and was recently accepted to both. I'm coming from Bowdoin College, a small liberal arts school in Maine. While I loved the small school setting and easy access to professors, I wasn't happy at all. I'm looking for a larger school located in a more urban setting. For me, it's especially important that classes remain small and that I can still form interpersonal connections with other students and professors.

I applied as an English major and my plans post-graduation include either law school or graduate school. I want to attend a school that will challenge me academically like Bowdoin did.

When it comes to cost, BU is far more expensive. $17,000 out-of-pocket vs $2,500 for Rice.

What are your thoughts?
