I received a graduate nursing degree and was not impressed with the degree of academics and philosophy of some professors/program directors. Few professors were great and passionate about their career and teaching, but many appeared to only be interested in what they thought was their big ego. The program lacked basic communication, administrative involvement and was very disorganized/inefficient. The classrooms/equipment/technology was very outdated considering the cost to attend. For those interested in pursuing an education in the Boston are, keep in mind that there are many different options to explore where you can get a priceless reward on your future investment.

Northeastern has definitely come a long way lately...some of the upperclassmen confess that they would not be able to get in if they were applying right now. Freshman year has more of a core curriculum than major-specific courses, so don't feel tied to your intended major.

If you choose NU, you're many steps ahead of your high school classmate. If you make it through NU, you will be ONE GIANT leap ahead of the competition.

This not an easy school to get in or stay in. The professors are demanding. Co-op is demanding. You have to hustle or you will lose out on any opportunity. College is meant to teach you to grow up. When you get to college,you're suppose to be grown up already. Those not mature enough learn quickly to leave. It makes class go by so much faster when they're not there.

Study abroad should be a must for anyone who attends.
