it depends on a lot of things, like class size and is hard enough to get into as a senior in high school, and the freshman retention rate is usually very high. you want to have at least a 3.5 college gpa, but they will consider your high school grades and test scores too. as far as credits and classes go, you should check collegeboard and bc.edu

It’s fair to say that most, if not all, Boston College professors are extremely capable, and more often than not, they’re ridiculously intelligent. However, competency and good nature don’t necessarily always go hand in hand. Some of the professors are here just because it’s their job, and some care but just don’t know how to teach or help confused students understand better. Luckily, bad or misdirected professors are in the minority. Most of the professors at BC are passionate and extremely intelligent individuals who inspire their students to follow the BC motto, “Ever to excel.”
Of course, there are a few bad apples that just can’t seem to relate to their students, typically because of an age gap that can span decades. Unfortunately, many of these professors are tenured so there’s little to no chance that they are leaving BC anytime soon. If the professor makes you queasy on the first day, then drop the class and add something else as soon as possible. To increase your chances of finding a good professor or interesting class, go to ugbc.org and check out the professor evaluations (PEPs), where previous students have chimed in with their two cents regarding the teacher’s aptitude. The PEPs are usually right on target describing the positive and negative attributes of the teacher. There are plenty of great professors at BC, and there’s no reason you should have to remain in a class where you feel hesitant to shine.
