I wanted to get some input on this from both Northeastern and Tufts people.
I've already been accepted to Northeastern (Honors college, 80k scholarship) for engineering. I'm still waiting to hear back from Tufts (I believe it's April 1). My question really is if I should withdraw my application from Tufts and submit my deposits Northeastern now. My main reasoning for wanting to confirm Northeastern now is for housing -- I want to request a single, and I've heard I'll have better luck if I submit deposits early.
I'll probably do electrical engineering or computer engineering, and I definitely want to take some environmental classes if not double major or something.
I really love both campuses, although Northeastern has the benefit of being right in Boston. Still, they're both about equal for me.
I like the idea of Northeastern's co-op program, but that's not an be-all and end-all for me.
How do the two programs stack up? What are your thoughts? Thanks!
