What do you think about Northeastern?

<p>I got accepted (not honors), but I also go accepted into better (more prestigious and better staffed) schools, such as Berkeley, NYU, and McGill. Yet, I don't want to go to McGill because its impersonal (many students have said this), Berkeley faces the CA deficit (some students are forced to take summer school or graduate in 5 years) and NYU (because I was only accepted into LSP). Northeastern seems attractive because of its job opportunities and location in Boston. It is also ranked as a fast-rising school, as in its quickly rising in the ranks of college prestige. I don't know how true that is, but do you think Northeastern should even be considered when compared to these other more highly-ranked schools?</p>

<p>Go with Berkeley, don’t even think about letting it go. So what if you have to take summer courses, Berkeley is an excellent place to study, and is also a wonderful city with AMAZING weather</p>

<p>McGill is not impersonal, visit it.</p>

<p>I think you should do McGill vs. Northeastern. I don’t know your financial situation, but Berkeley isn’t worth the debt, because I’m assuming Berk and NYU are the most expensive out of those schools and neither of them are worth dying in debt for. Northeastern is good, but it kind of depends on your major - a lot of kids tends to be from New England, and I don’t know many people outside of NE that have heard of it.</p>

<p>McGill on the other hand is cheap, world renowned, and probably one of the most unique college experiences ever. My vote is for McGill.</p>

<p>I’ve been to McGill. I understand it is world renowned. The prestige rank would probably be Berkeley > McGill >= NYU >>> Northeastern. However, they still are impersonal. This is coming from both students who hate it and students who like it (but have a personality that can tolerate it). Their early classes have 600+ people. Later, it gets smaller, but are still relatively large. McGill is also a party school and I like hanging out with philosophy-discussing kind of kids. I understand all colleges have all types of people, but I should still pick the one most likely to have the kinds of people I like. I mean, its not like I would go to Saudi Arabia if I want to meet Christians, even though they have a small Christian population. </p>

<p>@potoftea: I am out of state, so would that still be worth it? Are you from there? What about the debt?</p>

<p>If it helps you give me advice, I’m interested in Environmental policy and IR</p>
