The only downside to Northwestern is that the social life is not great that is true. Other than that this a world class university, especially academically. The faculty in any department for the most part a known-worldwide, and more importantly are easily accessible with many office hours scheduled during the week and even met with faculty at last minutes notice on Sunday before an exam! Your fellow students within the Honors programs and advanced classes will challenge you as well with their intellect.

Some of my cohorts have gone on to Princeton, Columbia, the University of Chicago, and Cornell for PhD programs. I myself am now a PhD student at Harvard.

I should note that many of these reviews are fake, some reviews mention NU being on "semesters"! Wrong we are on the quarter system, read some of the reviews yourself to discover the fakes who where probably rejected—poor bitter souls. On a last note dating at Northwestern sucks too, it is taken to two extremes. You will either meet your future spouse here or no one.

Best of Luck in Your Future Endeavors

Northwestern sounds great. I appreciate your wonderful review. My daughter graduates next year and we have so much anxiety about colleges. it is hard to find true reviews. How do you like harvard. My daughter is looking at harvard and we were wondering about the atmosphere, professors, the town, the diversity (mixture of races etc.) Thanks!
questionCan you talk more about the math department, the course work, and the professors? You said nothing much about it.
