  1. So glad that BU decided to partner with QuestBridge! I was a past CPS/Finalist but decided to attend BU instead of other QuestBridge schools which accepted me. Can’t wait to see more low-income students have the opportunity to class mobility from their admissions to BU.

  2. Wow that’s great, my tuition at BU went from 12,000 to 24,000 in just 3 short years. Rising faster than the rate of inflation.
    Glad that they realize that middle class people need to go to school also.
    Nice job!

    1. In regards to the last comment about realizing the middle class need to go to school: Questgroup is not for the middle class. They are for the low income under-respresented groups. There are no organizations like this for the middle class that I know of. If anyone does know of any please let me know. My son applied to BU with a 4.3 GPA, bilingual, athlete, classical piano player but didn’t get in. We all need support from an organization like Questgroup who can help applications stand out. I wish we had that guidance. Congratulations to those hardworking students who got accepted. I know what you sacrificed to achieve what you did.
