This statement is a little contradictory to me. I liked Northeastern alot, but I decided to go to the school that was cheapest for me because I want to do PI. Northeastern ended up being one of my most expensive options, and I withdrew, because when you want to do PI, debt becomes front and center in realizing your goals.
Yep, ditto. I was excited about Northeastern and their coop program and focus on PI. But they offered me no merit aid and I couldn't justify the price. Also, I live in New York and want to come back here, and I'm not sure how NUSL and its no grades/no rankings system would go over here anyway.
So, I mailed my letter notifying them that I'm withdrawing. Good luck to those waiting.
You can email a withdrawal, too. I did and they responded right away.
I got a good scholarship, but I also decided not to attend, with an additional reason being the non-grading system. In a rigid field in which grades mean everything, I think not having grades can hurt you and make your degree less portable. I also wanted to practice somewhere other than Boston (DC, for example) and I didn't want to have to rent another place in DC for multiple externships; I calculated the cost of travel and expenses for externships and it really paid for me to just go to school closer to the market I want to be in.
