Hi everyone,

I want to major in nursing. BC and NEU are two of my top choices. Can someone who went to either of these schools for nursing talk about their experiences there? Thank you :)

    Academically one of the differences is that BC has a liberal arts core (including a theology course) while NU does not so it offers more flexibility on classes takes. Also NU is big on co-ops and a lot of students will finish in 4.5 or 5 years while BC is more of a traditional 4 year college. However, BC allows to overload a few semesters and that frees a semester for co-op or going abroad. About student life, NU is more urban and more incorporated to the city. Over there you ll probably make friends with students from the other Boston colleges and also because of the co-ops it will be more student movement. BC probably offers a more cohesive campus experience. NU has a very small nursing program and by the time ED1, ED2, Boston public schools, and geographic diversity rolls out there will be very few spots left over. It is very hard to gain fall admission especially if you come from an over-representative area. It is much easier to gain admission to NUin though. Boston college has a few more spots but they also have ED and the numbers will be competitive for RD. If you care for financial aid, both colleges could offer a great package but they are not generally considered generous so it might or might not work depending on your specific situation and how lucky you are.

    Northeastern offers a decent amount of merit aid. BC only has 15 full tuition merit scholarships, everything else is need based. If that is a concern to your family.
