So Northeastern is as of now my top choice for schools. I love its location in the city while it still maintains a campus feel. Also, it's an up and coming school which is always beneficial. I love pretty much everything about it and could really see myself there. I plan on applying to the engineering school but if I don't enjoy engineering I will switch after my first year to something like Economics or Computer Science. I figured it is easier to switch out of Engineering rather than getting into it later on.
There is one thing that really conflicts me: I have a summer job which I love. I really would like to keep it through college, but I've heard that students are on co-op or taking summer classes then. I 25 minutes outside of Boston so its not like I wont be in the area, but its 40 hrs a week. My question is, how do summers work for NEU students? How much of a break will I have as a student, and will I be taking classes or on co-op? Also, will it be every summer? Thanks so much for the help and I really look forward to hearing your response!
