I used box and whisker plots frequently in undergrad. I find them really helpful in understanding a lot of data at one time in a visually engaging way. I never really know when to use a histogram or how to glean sufficient information from it, while a box and whisker plot allows me to easily compare means, medians, quartiles, and standard deviations across multiple data sets. It is really helpful for me in understanding overall differences in datasets.
