Northeastern has been getting over-rated a lot because of its coop program. Many law schools run clinics that function as essentially the same thing. With the current economy and everyone worried about jobs, the idea of coming out of law school with job experience is enticing. But I don't think Northeastern's coop program puts them above other schools that run clinics. You also have to think about where you want to practice. If you want to stay in New England, then Northeastern is a decent choice.
