As a student from the Mecca of education, Boston, MA, coaxing my parents into letting me go to a southern Michigan suburb was remarkably easy, even if Northeastern U. DOES offer a good co-op program from which my older brother graduated. Having been selected for A-Section placement is a hard decision, just as is sacrificing a normal male:female ratio of a technical institute, bucolic and vibrant/active landscapes of a city like Boston from which I hail for the trappings of Flint, MI. Some things you should know [from the perspective of an outsider:] If you have to worry about what you will do socially at college, this is NOT the university for you. Michigan may not have Boston or Philadelphia for a city, with all its institutions of education and arts close by, but there is no problem meeting friendly people from surrounding colleges/universities. I could not wait to get out of the early morning to early afternoon M-F grind of high school, only I found Kettering (formerly GMI) demanded more of my time, and efforts. By the time mid-senior year rolled around (Kettering has rolling admissions) I found out nearly all of my AP credits would not transfer, and later on when school started, I placed back into a math course I had passed in what seemed eons ago in high school. But this place raises the bar, and its heritage says it all. To handle more credit hours than a normal college student does, and to do it six months out of the year rather than nine takes a dedicated person. Because on top of that, you will most likely join a Greek organization to create an early network, just as you will join in the many on-campus clubs and activities. But when you consider nearly 1 in 6 of our 28,000 alumni become CEO's or chairpeople of their companies after coming out of the school with 2 1/2 years built-in co-op experience (you start freshman year), it is the 'cost to be the boss.' I am from Boston, and and industrial engineer. 80% of the school alone are undergrad mechanical engineers, and roughly the same percentage are from the state of MI. If you're reading this though, you are definitely onto something, so look into yourself to see if you have what it takes to be a Kettering Bulldog. For as Charles F. Kettering, holder of many patents once said, "Nothing ever built arose to touch the skies unless some man dreamed that it should, some man believed that it could, and some man willed that it must."
