IS Boston U much harder to get into than Syracuse?

<p>There's a site,, that among other things, ranks how hard it is to get into a school.</p>

<p>It has Syracuse as much harder to get into than Boston U.</p>

<p>My question is, if I got into Syracuse, and it was a high match for me (although I got in with a slightly lower GPA than their average of 3.5), and I have a legacy at Boston U, do you have a halfway decent shot at it?</p>

<p>I didn't get into Northeastern, which might be a bad sign, but I'm very arts focused and have very impressive extracurriculars, which I've heard helps more at BU than the more GPA based Northeastern.</p>

<p>I have a feeling that the Syracuse data is skewed because of Newhouse, Architecture, Business, etc.....From the stats, BU seems harder, but they also have different schools with diff difficulties of admission.....As a legacy, though, you probably have a bump...</p>
