Sports Illustrated took the cover photo for their April edition at the Marathon finish line this morning. I got there early enough to get to get a great spot and hold the World Series Trophy!

I managed to take advantage of the great weather yesterday to put this together. Welcome to Northeastern!

Answer
  • Question: Does doing co-op make it difficult to transition back to school life? For example, you may have forgotten a lot of class material during the six months you were away. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    No! Co-op is really intended to extend your classroom experience and bring what you’re learning in the classroom directly into the real world. You’ll really find that you finish co-op ready to be in class again and vice versa. 

Answer
  • Question: Are there ever any parties at northeastern? I just got accepted, and it won't influence my decision, just curious - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    So Northeastern definitely isn’t known as a “party school” per se. We are a major urban university however, so if you’re looking for that aspect of the college experience, it is there, however it’s never going to come drag you out of your room and into it. 

Answer
  • Question: Hi! I have been accepted to Northeastern Pharmacy program!! I was just wondering, how much difference is there between students in honors program and those who weren't accepted to honors program when it comes to education/advantages/disadvantages and such? Thank you for always answering questions on behalf of others!! - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Congratulations! There’s not a huge difference between Honors and non-Honors, it’s really going to come down to what you make of it. The honors first year living-learning community is the biggest difference as it does put honors freshmen in the same building. Otherwise, there are a few extra classes, additional advising, and access to what really can become another community for you at NU.

Answer
  • Question: There are so many pharmacy organizations on the NEU student website! How did you choose? And which do you recommend is really active on campus? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Hey! So there are definitely tons of pharmacy organisations, and it’s really up to you to find which ones fit you best. I personally am primarily involved in the ACCP (American College of Clinical Pharmacy), but really join the ones that you feel best fit your interests. Each one is active in a different way, but the name you’ll probably hear most is Phi Delta Chi, one of the biggest professional fraternities. I tried it for a bit, but I’m not big on the whole fraternity thing, so I found other groups that fit my interests better.

Answer
  • Question: I'm extremely afraid to ask them using my email because wouldn't that bring more attention to me and my awful grade?! I'm sorry, I have no idea what to do. Can you please give some advice, I would appreciate it very much. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Hey,

    So your regional admissions officer is going to get your final senior year transcript when you graduate. The best advice I can give you is to email your regional councillor (Use this link) and explain your situation. 

Answer
  • Question: Hey! I'm an incoming freshmen and I am currently failing AP Calculus (I have a 68....) Do you think NEU will rescind my EA decision due to a D on my final transcript? Do you know anybody who's been rescinded and can you share how/why? I'm kind of really freaking out!! :( Thank you so much in advance - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I can’t say I’m that familiar with the process of rescinding applications. Get in touch with the admissions office at admissions@neu.edu, they’re more able to answer that sort of question.
