similar to NORTHWESTERN?

<p>Northwestern doesn't have an undergrad business school, dnduswo.<br>
And I think there is a stereotype / reputation of USC students that is quite different from that of Northwestern's. I concur with the comparisons above - Stanford, Duke, Vanderbilt, Penn, WUSTL, Georgetown, etc. appear to be more comparable schools in terms of overall feel. Add Michigan if you overlook the size discrepancy.</p>

<p>hhmmm.....why isn't anyone mentioning Johns Hopkins??</p>

<p>For the same reason that nobody is mentioning the Univerity of Chicago or Columbia University.</p>

<p>oh..i thought nu had undergrad business school... sorry</p>

<p>JHU and NU are quite different I believe...</p>

<p>The schools most like NU - a mid-large private school with more of a pre-professional focus, in or near an urban area, and part of a major sports conference - are Stanford, Duke and Vandy.</p>

<p>Penn is also very similar (except the major sports conf. part).</p>

<p>Vanderbilt should be close. Both are great academic schools, of course, and are similar in that they compete against huge state universities in Division 1athletics and most often lose. Athletics are a big part of a school's persona, so take that into consideration.</p>

<p>I wish NU football was Division 2. We'd kick ass instead of getting it kicked all the time.</p>

<p>It's not that bad. They are 3-3 and likely going to be 4-3 by the end of this week. They still have a chance to go to a bowl game.</p>

<p>How about some less prestigious schools?</p>

<p>Less prestigious, maybe Lehigh? Syracuse?</p>

<p>If you want smallish, preppy: Washington & Lee, Trinity, Richmond, Davidson, and Union would be worth a look.</p>



<p>NYU does have frats and sports. In fact it's frat scene is quite robust. But there's no denying that the sports scene is lacking compared to Northwestern.</p>

<p>According to, the % of students at NYU and Northwestern are as follows:</p>

<p>NYU: 1% fraternities, 1% sororities</p>

<p>Northwestern: 32% fraternities, 38% sororities</p>

I wish NU football was Division 2. We'd kick ass instead of getting it kicked all the time.


<p>What are you talking about?</p>

<p>The past 4 seasons or so, NU FB has a .500 record against teams like Wisc., Iowa, Purdue, MSU and PSU and has a 4 game win streak against UI and a 3 game win streak against IU (they didn't play IU the past couple of seasons).</p>

<p>The only B10 team that NU hasn't had any level of success against is dOSU.</p>

<p>NU just needs to can the defensive coordinator who hasn't been able to put up even a decent D in 6 years. A decent D with the high-powered offense would make for a pretty good team, but as it is, the defense stinks.</p>

<p>NYU is nothing like NU.</p>

<p>chill out, it's just my personal opinion. i'm just glad we won our homecoming game against Minnesota.</p>

<p>as for what schools are similar to NU, i'd say cornell with a rather mid-sized suburban campus compared to their enormous campus in the boonies and perhaps penn in its pre-professionalism and urban opportunities.</p>

<p>i second what world changer said, NU is a very traditional school at heart. you have a good share of beautiful architecture covered in ivies on south campus (minus norris and the monster library) and you'll find a lot of more greek life, acapella concerts, theatre and activism on campus than sports ads or die-hard wildcat fans. football is here, and we're pretty good from time to time, but its not a defining thing at northwestern if you ask me.</p>

<p>i'd say it's a good mixture. if you're into football, hop on a bus and goto ryan field and you know you're at a bigten school. if you'd rather enjoy the more traditional things at northwestern there's always some sort of concert or event going at the cahn auditorium or norris.</p>

<p>^ Methinks you need to chill.</p>

<p>And personal opinion has no bearing on the actual FACTS.</p>

<p>i'm chill thanks</p>
