Northwestern University - Comments and Student Experiences|
If you're looking for a heavy and rigorous workload with hours and hours of studying every week, then NU may suit you. However, I was one of those kids that was looking to enjoy his time in college and all this work definitely tends to get in the way... I am very stressed out ALL the time. Even if this is what you want, it's not worth the price tag!!! I really could go on and on, but then this review could go on for forever. On a final note, music was a big part of my high school days. I wanted to keep on doing it in college even though I didn't want to major in music. Upon attending a meeting for the non-major orchestra, I was told that I couldn't use any of the lockers that the majors could, so I would have to keep my UPRIGHT BASS in my small, smelly dorm that I share with another person (the guy literally said: "hope your roommate doesn't mind"). And this place prides itself on its non music major opportunities. I say, it's absolute filth and they should be ashamed, because I no longer can play! If you are thinking about going here, please consider what you are getting yourself into. This university may suit you, but if you want to have a good time in college, CONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS!!!
