    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.

    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 balances out.
