    For its affordability, Northeastern offers what you would expect: a campus where you can explore your major and get your degree without excessive frills. The draw of the campus is in its affordability and the staff who I think are rather excellent.

    It's rated top 5 in best for your buck on some fancy college list. I just remember it's number five on the list right after Harvard. You'll get a great education without having to pay back loans for the rest of your life.
