I graduated in 2004-05 with my master's in physical therapy. NU is the best school for students who absolutely know what they want to do because they start placing you in the workforce as part of the co-operative education program. It is very likely one can pursue a position from the advantage of co-op. The campus has grown exponentially and is beautiful, modern and for the meets the efficient needs of the busy student life from gyms, to restaurants, to prime location and walking distance around the heart of Boston. It's not cheap, but the education is worth the price!
NEU's Student Financial Services is a total and utter disaster, made egregious error after error, and made no attempt to take responsibility for and resolve mistakes made by their staff.
I am a current grad student at NU. Engineering professors are not always great, business professors are more consistent in quality. NU is a non-profit organization, yet it raises the tuition every year, moreover it pays one of the highest salaries in the United States to its president Mr. Aoun, over $3 Million annually! (compare this number to Harvard and MIT presidents and you will see the ridiculousness of NU) Yet the library bathrooms are full of crap, piss and toilet papers on the floor during exam times. Not a consistent& cohesive establishment in quality education. Tuition price says high quality, but everything else does not nearly live up to it. This school definitely does not deserve the tuition dollars it charges. Pay for education, not for overpaid presidents. Verdict= Go elsewhere!
Great university! My experience has been amazing.
worst university. Just like a factory! that gives the degree for undergraduate and masters in mass production but not a university for research. also this university hires lots of students for on campus jobs because they are cheap and can use Federal work study plan so the university does not need to pay for these unprofessional student. The medical center is also very bad. All this university cares about is money. Nothing else! For them, students are customers only and professors are very superficial because they do not do research instead of just making money by giving cheap degrees. If you are only looking for a degree this university maybe good for you but if you are looking for a PhD, then dont waste your time here. Staying there is a nightmare for me!
