You can easily avoid any uncomfortable peer pressure situations by surrounding yourself with the right people.

There are lots of different options for majors, however little flexibility for electives when you pick a demanding major in the sciences or engineering.

Food in the dinning halls are very good and there are lots of places near campus that are delicious

The school is strict when it needs to be but is also very understanding

Parking pass for a semester $800, pro-rated if you have a job that requires a car $400. Parking outside of NU = impossible. Best bet find a friend up in mission hill that has a house with parking spots and give them $50 a month.
Only up side, parking at NU is within 5-10 of every academic building

Co-op! It is one of a kind and you can get no better hands on experience. Study abroad offers a ton of options as well. This is not a school to sit on your behind in Boston for 4 years. Take advantage of the opportunities, they are limitless at NU. You can co-op in any country, on any continent. (We even had a co-op on Antarctica). If you don't know what co-op is, google it!

Dining Hall gets old after freshman year (we do have 3) and meals can be used at a variety of locations on campus. Great part is once you are out of freshman year you don't need a meal plan and Boston offers up a ton of options!

Northeastern is academically oriented so less attractive people (on average) attend here than a state college. However you can still find very attractive men and women (going to say women have a leg up on the looks category). This is school is not huge on greek life, very entrepreneurial and independent spirit on campus. This is not your traditional 4 year college once you throw co-op into the mix. Like any college all relationships are found here and it is very easy to find and date people at neighboring school

The computers work well and there are plenty even if the campus is busy.

It costs quite a lot for parking. I tend to opt for taking the train.

There's a lot of variety, but it can be little pricey.

I hope that I earn the knowledge that will afford me a career in healthcare. My career goal is to work with developmentally disabled individuals with the aspects of physical rehabilitation or nutrition.

I have just been accepted to the master's program at Northeastern University for exercise science. I felt as though it was a typical application process. You had to fill out an application online, ask for letters of recommendations, submit a personal statement, resume, and transcripts. Then wait to hear about acceptance.

I have not done an internship at the graduate level but the undergrad internships at NEU are a great experience. I did two internships at a national manufacturing company. I worked in Financial Planning and Cost Accounting and was well paid and learned a tremendous amount.

I was happy with the undergrad program and would do it again. I have not enrolled in the Masters program yet but have heard that its very competitive and challenging. My career goal is to obtain a Masters in Info Security/Assurance and combine that with my 15 years of Accounting, Audit and Management experience to become a Chief Information Security Officer at a successful company.

I attended NEU undergrad and was very satified with their program. Their Accounting and Management program has a very modern feel. The program leverages technology and inlcudes real-life business cases. The under grad also require students to do internships throughout the program. The Masters program requires student to partner with a local business to work on a major graduate project and help the business improve their information security controls.

There are a variety of different dining options from the local pub to fine dining including Italian food and sushi. The campus is not far from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and there are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity.

It is a standard application and it was not difficult to apply. They have a competitive Information Security and Information Assurance Masters program. There are some interesting electives to enroll in as well. A colleague of mine earned her Masters in Assurance at NEU and earned a promotion at her job.

There are very few scholarships accessible to transfer students. Most scholarships are given to students that come straight from high school.

I do not have concerns about finding a job in my field, my main concern is being accepted into graduate school.

Housing is easily a mixed bag. The quality ranges drastically, and a lot of buildings are far enough away from the campus center to be inconvenient. For freshmen, aim either for Stetson or Int'l Village (the latter if you're in the honors program). For upperclassmen, any of the West Villages, Davenport, or even Wilson (if you get a renovated room) are nice. Be warned that prices go up after your freshman year, and getting a bad number in the housing lottery can put you between a rock and a hard place, especially since housing isn't guaranteed after sophomore year. The freshman roommate survey is also really short, and I know too many people that got stuck with roommates they hated.

Financial aid can be limited and the advisor shuffle makes it difficult to get more. You're best off aiming for as many scholarships as you can get.

You have the cold wet weather in the winter, and it can be hot some days during the Summer.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
