3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The cirrocumulus are good and registration process is quite easy

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The finial package was good. But I would have expected that since I did good in school I would have gotten a better finicial aid package but that didn't happen

3 College Senior

Career Services: They really do try there best to accommodate students with there questions and needs

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: This is one of the more in depth programs offered at BFIT. They truly turn you into a professional here.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The teachers make themselves available to most students. Theres no reason not to do well.

3 College Senior

Career Services: They are really cool in helping to set up job interviews. One thing that needs improvement are set ups for internship with possible job places.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I like how the teachers are straightforward and tell you the truth about the working field is like.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Small School but Complete. It's almost like Fenway Park, the school squeezes as much as they can in the little space that they have to work with. There isn't a gym, but there's an outdoor basketball court where you can play freely on. There's plenty of places to sit/read/study in between classes, either in the library, computer labs, outdoor patio seating, nearby restaurants, and more. There's a big auditorium that is used for talent shows, and various events throughout the year. The library is small but untapped, most people usually go to use the computers there or sit solo with their laptops. There's a small student center with a tv and pool tables + ping pong tables. There's also free popcorn day usually once a week also. Career center is really helpful with school transfers, resume advice, career advice, job hunting help, and more. And the admissions office is an open door of helpfulness that's readily available. Along with a academic support center that's headed by the actual faculty that are teaching the classes, and it's free. It's a small school but it's pretty complete.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Freshman's and up – School is made up of primarily of kid's out of high school and you might spot more than a few non-traditional students who are pursuing a technical degree as a career change. Student body is pretty diverse as it's right in the city of Boston and most minorities are represented at the school.

Overall Experience: Hands on Work Is Awesome. I came from a different school where the majority of the time, for the major I was pursuing (computer science/specialized in networking), we were literally being taught how to understand a network through text. There were no hardware available, no routers, switches. etc. etc. It was a really big waste of time. It wasn't due to the teachers not being qualified as they also taught at nearby big universities, it was due to lack of funding for the IT department. But anyhow. I'm really enjoying learning things and have actually decided to veer away towards my initial thoughts in the field to pursue a career in software instead of administration.

Academic Experience: BFIT System Administration – The classes are small, and the department head is really accessible and knowledgeable. You're only limited by your reluctance to ask for help. otherwise they're there to help you and they know the material thoroughly. Granted there are different teaching styles within the department but everything is pretty hands on and you're able to follow up with any questions after class of in the academic support center.

College Junior

Academic Experience: Personal Study – i am not taking course yet, but it is very helpful

College Junior

Online Courses: Personal Study – I am not taking courses yet, a have personal study

3 College Senior

Student Body: Most Work on Time – Mostly focus on school, you should do your work first and everything will fall into place

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: 1St Year Experience – This year has been very good. I like how all the teachers are willing to listen to your problems when you ask. Since the classes are so small it's very easy for the teacher to make time to meet with you. The scheduling of classes was very nice as I had Fridays off. The staff are very personable and nice. I would choose this school again if I had to to do it all over because the atmosphere is very free. Traditional schools seem to be very controlling and cramped which is why I like such a small school as this one.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: Every students in my school are hard working-class people and all have a full time job to provide for there families. They come to school, get the work done, socialize with other class mates and move on about there days..

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Very Good – My experience has been good. I love the flexibility of the class schedules, I am able to work and provide for myself and going to school at the same time. I know that many of my credits will be able to transferred to my next school...

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: My class mates and staff are always supporting me in everything i do in school. They are always there to give me a help hands.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Flexibility of classes is not an option for automotive students, its a fixed schedule. Transportation and parking are one of the hassles due to the college is in the city.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is the lowest in the city of Boston, but still expensive. Definately worth paying though.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Overall, pretty fast and reliable for printing. Wifi is slow during the middle of the day beacause of all the students and internet doesnt work every once in a while.

College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My Chosen Field – I can't wait to start classes at Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston, MA in September 2011. It is a smaller school centrally located in one of my favorite parts of the city and I know it'll be easy to get to and from and I'm sure I'll make new friends and come out with great knowledge of my chosen field.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: New Grant – BFIT has many shop classes however they were just awarded a grant that will gear my education to the newer motors as well as hybrid motors.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Benefits of My School – Although my major is Automotive Technology my school is different from other schools offering this program. B.F.I.T. offers hands on shop classes but also general requirement classes like English, Math, Science. The main reason for choosing this school is so that I graduate not only with trade experience but also transferable credits if I choose to continue with school.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Wish It Was Easier. I have almost completed my first year so this will be my second time dealing with financial aid. It is amazing that when you like your school the financial aspect doesn't scare you as much. That being said I do worry about increasing costs that i will incur after graduating as well as what my parents are paying now. I feel that my family falls between the crack for financal aid, we get some but not really enough to not effect daily life. My parent have always wanted to help me with school but with the economy the way it is can barely keep up with their portion never mind my commuting costs. B.F.I.T. have been very helpful during the process however I feel that being a small school doesn't lend itself to many outside scholarships/grants/state aid.
