Northwestern University - Comments and Student Experiences|
The academics are great. Great professors that are willing to help, interesting classes. Also, people are impressed by Northwestern's name, which is a superficial thing but also pretty nice to have. If you're going to come here, be very, very proactive about finding a good social life/group right from the start of your freshman year. Otherwise those opportunities tend to close up. If you find the right ones, you'll probably have a good time.
