Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The Boston University's London Internship Program was easier academically than Trinity. The workload was lighter and the grading system was the same. I enjoyed that in my classes we were able to go to museums and on architectural filed trips everyday-- (but that had to do with the location).
