Detailed Ratings

This was my first choice college. Thankfully I got in and will enter as a freshman in the fall. I have visited and toured this campus many times and kept coming back to it as my first college choice. It is ranked as one of the top business schools in the country. The academic program appears to be rigorous. I plan to major in actuarial science and the job placement rate for this is high. Bryant actually prepares and allows you to take the first two tests to become an actuary before you graduate. This is something that many schools did not offer. I can acutally major in actuary here, where many schools only allow this to be a minor. I love the grounds, the division one sports, and the social aspects of Bryant. The school is small enough to meet many people and know your professors on a personal level.
