This week, Murilo (from Team LP Brazil) is traveling all over the East Coast, touring and learning all about some of the best universities from New York to Boston. Follow him here for his insights into the various colleges -- what they're like and what it takes to get in!
Murilo's next adventure: Bentley
Why is this school awesome?
Murilo: Bentley is not just an awesome business school, it’s also a technology school with excellent sports facilities, and I loved their Main Gym! Bentley has Division I & II sports teams and competitive and fun intramural competitions. The most impressive part to me was the facilities; everything is very new, and they've thought of everything! Small details such as the water fountain and garbage bins look nice. Also, the school is small, only 1400 students, so people get to know each other well.
Favorite spot on campus?
Murilo: The trading room with access to Bloomberg terminals.
5 words to describe campus?
Murilo: BEAUTIFUL, [super] CLEAN, GREEN, SMOKE-FREE, WISH I COULD LIVE HERE!
The "typical student" is...
Murilo: Business driven and competitive!
Murilo: International students make up 16% of the students at Bentley. Students have the opportunity to learn business in a high-tech and hands-on environment, and there are interesting networking opportunities with students and professors!
Special programs/offerings applicants should consider?
Murilo: Business (of course!) and creative industries.
Tips for the application process?
Murilo: Bentley values students who have played leadership roles during their extra curricular activities and prior business experience helps with applications. The average ACT score is 28, and Subject Tests are not required. Applicants should be academically driven because grades matter! Also, it's important to take challenging high school classes.
Murilo: THE STAIRCASES ARE HEATED! Mindblown.
