Reasons to attend and to not attend Northeastern University

To Attend

  • “The co-op program. It can significantly increase your chances of getting the job you want or figuring out what you want to do or not do.”
  • “Northeastern is on the rise. It’s a good time to get in and ride that wave because it’s getting very hard to get into.”
  • “It’s in Boston, which is a huge city with lots to do. It’s also cleaner and less busy than New York City.”
  • “The life-minded individual. You’ll find people that are already thinking about work and trying to be successful.”
  • “Co-ops are a way to make connections and lots of money during college.”
  • “The professional skills you gain, like resume building and job search skills.”

To Not Attend

  • “School spirit. It’s hard to get people to go to games. The school spirit is tampered down to an extent because everybody is focused on other things.”
  • “People are coming and going constantly because of co-op. You might not see your friends for a long time. You also grow up very quickly because of co-op and it sometimes feels rushed. If you’re the person that likes stability and continuity, you’re not going to like it. I didn’t see one of my good friends from freshman year until my fifth year.”
  • “Living in Boston and paying for Northeastern gets very expensive.”
  • “If you’re really into the liberal arts, you probably want to go somewhere else because Northeastern is a business and engineering-focused school.”
