What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was my number one choice and I am extremely happy here. Northeastern University is in the middle of Boston however, it has a central campus which makes you feel like you are not in the middle of a city. They have grass areas to sit, study and socialize with friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love it. Northeastern has given me really great opportunities be it global opportunities or co-op. These opportunities really helped me grown and make me feel really prepared for the real world. The premise of "experiential-learning" is really driven home. I couldn't imagine ever going to a traditional 4-year college and I don't feel like I missed out on any experiences. There are so many extracurricular opportunities, professors really want the best for you and there is​ so much flexibility with your degree. NEU lets you change your major, have many minors, have a combined/double major and have a combined masters degree really easily. The population is also pretty diverse as there are a lot of international students!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a graduate student, I really enjoy being back on campus. The location is convenient in the city of Boston, and there are plenty of amenities around to allow me to get food, coffee, etc. between work and class. The professors are all extremely knowledgeable from my experience to date and are quite responsive via email when I have needed them. The Business School graduate office is also incredibly supportive and really care about the cohorts they bring in. The staff make an effort to get to know students and are constantly arranging events for us. The application process was so smooth and I felt fully supported by them through every step of it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Northeastern University is very good in preparing students for their professional stage in life after college with the coop program, this is a big reason students choose to attend Northeastern over other colleges and the coop program offered in Northeastern has such a good reputation that most student graduate with a job already in place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fantastic school with a great social scene and solid academics. This University is on a meteoric rise and its innovative mindset is what will set it apart from other schools down the line. They do a great job on what I would call traditional academics, they do a fantastic job in their education innovation which includes, internships, 6 month job placements, travel abroad, language trips, community service trips etc. During my time at Northeastern, I did three 6-month jobs placements in technology, government and finance. I also studied in London for a semester. I received a job offer immediately after graduating and am now working in Finance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I fell in love with Northeastern the first time I visited two years ago. I thought that it was the only place I'd ever want to be and the only college that would ever make me happy. I was so, so wrong. I've never been more unhappy in my entire life. Northeastern does absolutely nothing to make sure that their students are well cared for. Their only priority is to make sure we graduate and obtain a job so that they can keep their ratings high, and the money coming in. Probably the most greedy, income obsessed school that I know of. They talk about their co-ops like they're the only school in the country that offers them, but many other schools offer internships and cooperative education. You can definitely find good opportunities elsewhere. If you are studying Health Sciences, DO NOT APPLY HERE. The program for Health Sciences is very rigid, and there is almost no flexibility in your schedule. The administration picks your classes for you, you have only one or two opportunities to study abroad (which are very inconvenient times and locations), and so far I am not impressed with my teachers. Additionally, the social life here is terrible. There is absolutely no community at Northeastern, and the living situations and unfriendly student body make it impossible to make friends and meet genuinely nice individuals. Everyone thinks that they are smarter than everyone else, and will do their best to prove it to you. The dining hall food will want to make you go on a juice cleanse by the first week, since everything is clearly frozen and bought in bulk. There is never anything legitimately appetizing or worth eating. For freshman, they force you to stay on a $1500+ meal plan, even though you definitely won't use all of your meal swipes for the week ever. The Health and Counseling Center shouldn't even be allowed to run- seeing that they barely provide services to their students. The center is always understaffed, and you never feel like you can go to get treatment because they're lacking in resources. If you need any kind of mental health counseling, they'll send you a list of Boston therapists because they literally don't have the time or staff to accommodate you. If you live outside of MA, they'll make you pay $2000+ for insurance even if your state insurance covers everything they ask for. Overall, this school is a total waste of time, money, and resources and I am severely disappointed with every aspect of this university. I had such high hopes for Northeastern, but it turns out that it's all built on exaggerated statements and empty promises. Please look elsewhere when applying to college. I can assure that you'll be happier at any other school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It the best university one can opt for their studies. You can study between the diverse population which inculcates the cultural exchanges and different experiences. It also offers the best CO-OP option for the students! Also the professors are top notch with excellent research options for the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Only there to take your money. Does not give you your transcript when you need in emergency, instead sends you irrelevant charges to pay that does not belong to you. When confronted, different members of the staff keeps on escalating the situation on different departments. Even after paying thousands of dollars and travelling thousands of miles from home, they don't listen to your claims, instead they ask to rather pay the charges to pass the length process to avoid mental stress. In a way we students should pay the unnecessary and false charges initiated by their staff which they cannot explain. Even academically, it's curricular is not up to the mark as it is hyped by their marketing. Overall try to skip this university, it is not worth it.
