Northeastern provides a wide range of experience in various fields, which I prefer since I am interested in working in multiple fields (more interdisciplinary). Quite honestly right now you are asking a forum full of majority biglaw fanatics who like to induce collectivized freak outs. I suggest you should get into contact (phone or in person) with alumnis from each school who are working in your preferred field. That will get you more accurate information than elitist 0L advice and my useless obsessive research. Also check out northeastern's co-op program opportunities in California.
Do you know anything about the state of the public interest and government opportunities?
Why would you ask only a self-selected group of people who got whatever job they were hoping to get? Go ask some unemployed Northeastern students about their awesome co-op program or the school's public interest placement.
