Connections at BU

<p>I know and work with a really good professor ( he has been in national news) in engineering. Do you think that helps my chances of getting in.</p>

<p>Make sure to take full advantage of this. Explicitly ask him to put in a good word about you to the admissions committee and the representative from the college of engineering. It may not do anything to affect your acceptance, but it sure can't hurt.</p>
