SAT: 2240 Male
Active in extracurricular activities, good SAT scores, good GPA,Mar 04 2009Political Science
Active in extracurricular activities, good SAT scores, good GPA, all that jazz on princetonreview.com and USNews. Northeastern admissions seems pretty superficial--I don't think my essay was all that great. I'm sure a good one can make up to some extent for not so great grades. I applied early admission, found out in late January. It is a pretty selective school. I think that my year, for every student that was admitted, 11 were turned away. Every year it gets more competitive. Every year, the caliber of student goes up.
SAT: 1900 Female

Do your work, be active in your community, hope for the best. Northeastern received the 3 highest amount of incoming freshman applicants among universities in the U.S. for 2008, so it is becoming more competitive.

My extracurriculars are pretty good. I'm a officer in DECA, member of Key Club with 100+ hours of community service. I got pretty decent scholarship too. I applied Early Action which I would recommend.
They had over 9,000 applicants for the College of Business alone, with only 450 spots... It's getting incredibly competitive.
