In at Northeastern
« on: January 29, 2005, 04:26:08 PM »
Pretty damn surprised.  They responded to me in less than three weeks, and I didn't think I was that strong of a candidate.  Should be good news for everyone else.

Anyone else considering this school?

What are people's general impressions?

I think its a really good school but being behind the big three in Boston kind of scares me.

It's pretty good to know you are actually going to school.   :D

I also applied to Northeastern and I have the same concerns as you (rankings behind Harvard, BC, BU). I'm really impressed with your turnaround time. I haven't heard anything yet. Did you get a complete application notice?

I visited Northeastern and the student who led my tour chose it over BU and is very happy there. She created her own co-op assignments from her hometown and spoke very highly of the co-op program and the education she is receiving there in general.

It's definately a contender for me, and working 4 co-ops has to be helpful for networking and future employment as well as helping offset the high cost of tuition and living in Boston.

Do you think you'll end up there?

I just got the postcard yesterday. The title of the event is "Co-op and Post-Grad Employment Opportunities" and the description says "Learn more about co-op and post-graduate job placement from the sources themselves: a staff member from the co-op office, a co-op participating employer, and a current co-op student."

It's on Thursday, Feb 10 from 5-6:30pm with an optional tour at 4pm. You should RSVP with them at lawadmissions@neu.edu.

I wish I can go, but i will be traveling that week. Oh well.
