    Northeastern is a really good school and is well recognized in the New England area and because they are a private university they can provide you a lot of merit and need based aid if you qualify.

    Co - Op. One of the main reasons why I ended up choosing Northeastern was there Co - Op option and job percentage information. It is amazing to be able to apply what you learn in the classroom to the real world and still have the security blanket of being in school. It teaches you what you know and need to know and gives you an idea of what to study for. Also, I believe over 90%+ students get a job after graduation (This is unheard of)

    Way, way, way, WAY SUPER DUPER expensive school. The financial aid is good and I got a scholarship and a grant, but I still needed to cover some and the financial aid office is super unhelpful. I ended up having to take out more loans in addition to the federal student loans I was offered.

    It's not cheap but considering the education you receive, you won't mind paying the going tuition rate for it.
