northwestern is also known for relative flexibility in double majoring due to its quarter system. At NU, there are 3 "quarters" during the regular school year and a summer quarter. during the regular school year, students take 4 classes a quarter, which means 12 a year. at many semester schools, I've been told students take 5 a semester, meaning 10 a year. 2 more classes a year= 8 more over four year span. i think some minors are like 8 classes alone, right?. im hoping to double in econ and learning and organizational change (consulting-like, group dynamics, etc.) , and if i work at math to the nth degree, the kellogg certificate in financial economics (sequence of 4 classes). this probably holds true at most quarter system schools. what thoughtprocess said is right, foreign language proficiency is invaluable. (so glad i placed out of spanish).
