I originally went to a much smaller school to study Recording Arts. What made NU appealing to me as a transfer student was the wealth of opportunity, both provided by the school's Co-op program and by being in the city of Boston.
I decided to go to Northeastern for two main reasons. First, I wanted a change of scenery. I'm from a pretty small, rural town in California and I fell in love with Boston when I visited it a few summers ago. I always knew that I wanted to go to school in Boston. Second, the Co-op program is unbeatable. I knew NU would put me on the fast track to finding a job that I would really like.
I'm originally from South Florida. I wanted a change of scenery. I wanted to see the snow. I wanted to live in a city where I wouldn't ever need to drive. I wanted to have purpose. Northeastern had all of these things and a bonus Co-op program that has opened more doors for me than I could have imagined.
Mainly the Co-op program. With the economy the way it is, I wanted to be sure I had an advantage finding a job upon graduation, and Northeastern has the #1 best career services branch in the country. Other contributing factors: Boston, Northeastern had a dual major in what I wanted.
Because Northeastern is a Boston which is a rather developed city in USA, there may be more opportunities for me to find a job. The rating of Northeastern is very high these years. It is the highest school that admit me.
Coop is the reason that myself and so many others have chosen Northeastern for our higher education. The coop program is probably the largest overall draw (who wouldn't want to have 18 (paid) months of job experience by the time they finish their undergraduate degree? Coop is truly what sets Northeastern apart from many other peer schools. Northeastern's Business School was rated number 1 among all American schools by the Princeton Review in 2008 (beating the likes of Harvard, MIT, Wharton, not to mention BC and BU).
Aside from the amazing coop program, the location of Northeastern is also a major plus. It is a physically small campus, and serves as sort of an oasis of calm set right near the center of Boston. The location/campus atmosphere combination is something that I have not experienced at any other school I have seen or visited.
Coming from a small suburban beach town in Rhode Island, I had three things in mind when deciding on colleges. I wanted to be at a big school, in a city, with good academics. I narrowed my choices down to a couple of schools, UConn and Northeastern. One had the big city, the other was basically its own town. Both big schools, both great academic reps. What sold me on Northeastern was the campus, Boston, and the co-op. Having a beautiful campus and still managing to be in the city was something I didn't even think was possible, so I was blown away when I visited Northeastern. On top of that, the benefits in the job market and post-graduation life of co-op pushed Northeastern over the edge. Having the resume upon graduation of someone who had been out of college for 1-2 years already was something I couldn't pass up.
