I did well in school, took APs and honors, and participated in clubs. You also need to do well on SATs and ACTs. Northeastern is a great school but they don't just take the extreme intellectuals, they take a variety of students (all still smart though). As long as your application exemplifies that you are driven, ie. APs and honors and clubs and high positions held, you are likely to get in.
ACT: 28 Female

The school itself is a good school- and you have to do the work to pass- but its the red tape you have to get past. You are just a number here and you never get a reply from the admin people when you need info.
