Review of Northeastern University

My review

The Good:

Co-op program and the way the college experience is rooted in realistically and productively answering that unnerving question for so many undergraduates: what am I going to do with the rest of my life? And as Northeastern has worked hard to move up the ranks academically, it asserts good standards and has great facilities. And centrally located in Boston doesn't hurt either!

The Bad:

Less a program with the school than the context: At the time of my studies, with the erosion of tenure and a glut of graduate students in the humanities on the market, the potential career path for someone with advanced degree in literature had become, well, overgrowth. Resulting lack of prestige meant attention and funding to literature program had become poor.

Would I do it again?
