I transferred here after my freshman year = BEST DECISION EVER.
The overall reputation of the university is fantastic. Northeastern is becoming more and more selective each year. We are the third fastest rising university in the rankings. We jumped 70 spots since 2001! The Co-Op program is arguably the best in the US, if not one of the best in the world. They hook you up with lots of jobs with Fortune 500 companies. 60% of interns get rehired after graduation by the same companies that they did their Co-Ops on.
The education is top notch. The business school is highly respected (not to mention ranked 27th best by BusinessWeek. BU ranked 43rd!). The classes are small, and the teachers are obsessed with getting to know their students.
The school has a beautiful, well maintained, technologically advanced campus. We have a campus, and it's an urban university. What else do you need? The gym is one of the best in Boston, and is HUGE. The dorms are nice, and upperclassmen get apartment style housing with 3-4 roommates and a kitchen, living room, etc.
There are parties all around the school, and it's very lively. You can't walk on campus without there being some event going on.
The dining halls are amazing! Super clean and futuristic. We also have Taco Bell, Wendy's, Starbucks, etc on campus.
There is also a very large international student population, so there are people from everywhere going to this school.If you are considering this school, I think it would be well worth your money.
