Can I apply to two different colleges within Boston University?
I have strong interest in both engineering and in marine biology, I don't want to double major as I plan to eventually just pick one but I am not sure at the moment. I was hoping to be able to decide after my first year of college but from what I am understanding BU makes you apply to one of their specific colleges rather that the university as a whole. Is there anyway I could apply to both their college of engineering and their college of arts and sciences?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Just to second @Adri's answer, you can only apply to one school. Engineering is more competitive, so switching out of it will be easier than switching into it (but getting into engineering will probably also be harder than getting into A&S, unless your background very clearly supports your interest in engineering). You can learn more about BU's transfer policies here: https://www.bu.edu/academics/policies/intra-university-transfer/
Also, feel free to add your comment as an answer @Adri! I want you to get credit for your answer.
Hope this helps, and let me know if you have more questions!
