I studied American Sign Language Interpreting and theBrightLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
I studied American Sign Language Interpreting and the faculty is biased (you don't kiss butt, you don't do well). They do not nurture educational goals. For example, I wanted to become a legal interpreter and was constantly told, "It takes years of experience, so don't focus on that right now." Even in class assignments they would tell us not to choose topics involving legal and medical interpreting for the same reason.

I've had a super great experience so farSuper BrilliantBusiness - Management and Administration
I've had a super great experience so far a Northeastern. I'm a business major (marketing and entrepreneurship) and I love the business program and have learned a lot. I have friends for all over the world and college and Northeastern specifically have been great. Let's be honest though, the main reason people go here is because of co-ops. The co-op program at Northeastern is the largest, best,0 and most developed in the the world and its very evident how seriously and advanced it is at our university. Attending Northeastern is probably the best decision I've ever made and i'm glad i wen through with it.

While Northeastern University (NEU) has many majors toSuper BrilliantEconomics
While Northeastern University (NEU) has many majors to choose from, from my experience it seems to be structured more towards STEM majors (i.e engineering, computer, biotech, etc.)

All of the other departments seem to be lacking in enough faculty to support the inflow of students that apply there every year. There is also insufficient course subjects in any major that is not a STEM. You find yourself wasting money ($5xxx a course) taking courses that you do not like...just because you need to fulfill your major requirements.

Also, it's important to know that if you declare a minor, it will not be written on your diploma. Only your major will be written. Hopefully, if you are reading this, you won't make the same mistake of wasting your money and time on getting a minor. It only shows on your transcript and not your diploma. That kind of defeats the purpose of getting a minor.Honestly, if you can get into Tufts, Harvard, would be better, plus they cost exactly the same...
