Review of Northeastern University

My review

The Good:

The best thing about Northeastern is the opportunity to be around other driven and ambitious students. Everyone here has a goal and is doing everything they can to get there. It is motivating to be around so many students looking to get somewhere fast.

The Bad:

The worst thing about Northeastern is that students are constantly leaving for co-ops or study abroad programs so student life is not nearly as fulfilling as I've seen at other schools. You will not get a traditional experience at Northeastern.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I value the experiential education and options that Northeastern gave me and I feel prepared to enter the workforce in my field. However, I wish I did get to have the all-American college experience that my friends at other schools got to have.

Professors are generally Easy

The night life is Repetitve

Every student at this school needs Winter clothes - even if you're from New England, Boston winters are so much colder.

Most students spend their Saturday nights Mostly parties in small apartments with friends

Another awesome thing is Students come from everywhere; you meet people that you would never meet

Study Hard? Pray? Donate Money? Show how you stand out from other applicants

I wish I knew Most professors aren't nearly at the caliber of those at comparable schools.
