    Northeastern is a very expensive school, but it has a good value of education because of the experiential education with the co-op program, which if used to full potential will almost guarantee job placement after graduation.

    Northeastern is very expensive, however, if you take advantage of the co-op program and career services, you will get a job soon after you leave (making it well worth it!)

    Northeastern is expensive...but when you weigh the co-op opportunity, rising in the rankings, research opportunities, and quality education...it balances out.

    Don't be fooled Northeastern is an expensive school!! But i believe the price can be offset by investing your time to make some solid out of classroom connections which is pretty much what the school's mission with the co-op and other experimental education outlets that should't be too difficult.
