Overall I'd say NU is a pretty satisfactory school. The co-op program is great. I had no problems finding and internship (music industry) and my boss is a well-connected professional in the industry. The classes they offer for my major have a good amount of variety and cover all the topics i am interested in. Boston is a great city to live in for college, especially since there are so many other college age students all over the city. Overall, I do not regret my choice to go to NU.
I visited Northeastern University a few weeks ago, along with another school in Boston. Northeastern definitely seeemed to be a better fit for me for many reasons. Everyone that I spoke with there was so nice and answered each of my questions fully and with a smile. They seemed to have a sport or club for everyone and the campus was absolutly beautiful. The location in the city scared me a little at first because of the issue of safety, but with their own campus police and "blue light" systems set up everywhere I would feel completely comfortable there. I literally could not find a place on the campus where I could stand and not see at least two "blue lights." Overall, the campus was wonderful and I encourage everyone to check it out for themselves.
