I made a big mistake getting inJul 26 2011Engineering Department
I made a big mistake getting in. I recommend you go elsewhere - this place isn't worth 50% the tuition they soak you for.

To transfer I had a 3Feb 17 2011Economics
To transfer I had a 3.1 GPA after two years at a junior college just recently introducing four year programs. My high school SAT were slightly above average and my grades were pretty much Ds and Fs so they don't really care about that if you got your act together in college.

I understand NU was once considered an easy school,Dec 16 2010Philosophy
I understand NU was once considered an easy school, a safe school. No more. Most students here did very well in HS and on their SATs. They can write and think. I pretty much worked hard in HS, got good grades, prepared for my SATs and did well. I was a varsity athlete and participated in school and community activities. The usual stuff.
SAT: 1420 Female
Since my SAT scores weren't amazing and my gradesDec 13 2010Psychology
Since my SAT scores weren't amazing and my grades in high school were good, but not good enough to make me stand out, I think that the thing that got me into Northeastern was my essay. I wrote a very detailed essay about a character in a book and why I can relate to that character. I put alot of effort into my essay and I had several of my teachers and my parents proof read it and make corrections on it before I actually handed it in.
SAT: 1700 Female
Do as much community work and extracurriculars as youAug 24 2010Communications
Do as much community work and extracurriculars as you possibly can in high school. Obviously, do well in school and definitely have good, professional, and accredited recommendations.
