Good evening everyone,
I am looking to transfer from UMass Amherst into either one of the aforementioned schools (have been accepted into both). I am a Political Science major, and it has been difficult to decide between the two schools so far.
While Boston College does seem to have a stronger prestige / academic reputation and an overall stronger Political Science department, I do not think that I would fit in well there. Based off everything that I’ve seen, it seems a bit upscale with a strong emphasis on partying / sports. I’m also not too keen on the idea of being far away from Boston, especially since I spent an entire year in rural Western Mass.
That being said, does anyone have any advice on the Political Science curriculum at Northeastern? Or does anyone know if Political Science majors can land strong co-ops at Northeastern University? I think that this would be a better fit for me socially, but if Northeastern won’t open the door for successful career options in the future, it would be futile to enroll.
