How to afford Northeastern?

eg1995eg1995 Registered User Posts: 116 Junior Member

Not going to lie, my grades are pretty decent. My GPA should be a 3.8/3.7 by the time I graduate. SAT is about 2150. Etc etc. EC's are pretty good.

My dream school is Northeastern in Boston. Tuition per year is 54,000$. I plan on majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting and then going for my CPA license.

EFC is around 20,000, merit scholarships will hopefully be given. With the coop how much can I hope to dent out of my overall tuition? My ultimate dream is to attend Northeastern. I would hopefully do 4 year with 2 coops in order to save some money instead of 5. How hard is it for a full ride? What are some common stats on full ride recipients?

My dream is to attend this school, and I will be willing to do whatever it takes to go here. How would you suggest I go about funding this school? My parents do decent, but their income and stuff looks better on paper than in actuality. My twin brother will be attending college at the same time, but probably a local college.

I'm willing to work my butt off to go to school here, is it possible to get a 2nd job at the same time as coop? How about during a usual semester?

Any advice on being able to fund my dream school? I'm not looking for "its unrealistic, go to a state university, etc." I know what I can afford and I know what I am willing to do in order to attend this university.

Any advice is helpful
