| If I could do it (the college admissions process) all over again, I 100% would. I am from Massachusetts, so all my life, people have told me to go to Boston for college. Because of the opportunities I would get at Northeastern, I chose to come here. Everyone comes here for the co-op; if they say anything else they are lying. For my major (Speech-Language Pathology), we are only allowed to have one co-op, it has little to do with our major unless you're one of the two people doing Audiology, and some are not even paid. My major feels completely neglected at this school, especially since we have basically no study abroad opportunities and thats another huge draw for people to Northeastern.|
As for the students, I was shocked at what I found. Most everyone is extremely liberal, so if you are even slightly conservative I really think you should be hesitant about coming here. People are ignorant and all went to expensive private high schools. Most people come from wealth here and are pretty spoiled. Most people here are hipster and bizarre, so being average is pretty abnormal. The rest of the people are international and are either rude or don't speak english. The smoking issue on campus is disgusting; for someone who is fairly conscious about their health, I feel like I am slowly dying here because of the abundant cigarette smoke. Also, everyone smokes weed here. I can never sleep because people party outside my dorm window until the early morning every single night, and my RA is on co-op and is never here so my hallway is insanity. For the amount of debt I am already in and the amount of money I am paying to be here, I am really regretting my decision. I wish I expanded my horizons more when looking for colleges. I am looking to transfer for my sophomore year because I can't afford to be miserable here for the next four years.

| If you're a cut-throat, lazy buttwipe and want to just take shortcuts to get ahead, this is a great school. It's all about the co-op. As long as you get the co-op you want, you're "guaranteed" to make massive amounts of money, and money is all that matters. Attending class? Not a priority, just make sure you suck up, get a decent grade, and get your co-op co-op co-op!!! School is a load of marketing hype.|
Socially? Good luck trying to get anyone to talk to you. You go to class and in the minutes before class starts/the professor shows up, people are just on their laptops or their iPads or their phones. No conversation. Dead silence. Always. Dining hall? You'll be sitting alone, just like everyone else.Just make sure you get your co-op, though, because you will make infinite money and then you can buy a social life, though who needs that, when you have co-op!
