# Northeastern ($$) vs. BU  Question banks Downloads My Bookmarks Reviews Important topics ### Northeastern or BU? • 0% [0] • 100% [2] Author Message TAGS: Intern Joined: 17 Feb 2013 Posts: 1 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 0 [0], given: 0 Northeastern ($$$) vs. BU [#permalink] 17 Feb 2013, 22:03 Northeastern: I already gave my deposit. BU: I very surprisingly got off the waitlist this week. BU was my top choice ever since I decided I was going to go for my MBA, but moved them out of my mind since I got the waitlist in December. But after learning more about Northeastern I really like their program - the networking they provide the students via the career fairs they have for internships and full time positions, and the 6 month internship they do (which is paid!). Also, when I visited the campus and spoke with students, they really seemed down to earth and easy going. And out of all the schools I visited (never visited BU) I felt most comfortable and "at home" with the Northeastern students. Before knowing more about Northeastern, I think I would have picked BU, but not sure anymore. I know BU is higher up on the ranking, but does that really matter after your first job and if you're not going to a top 20 school? Not sure. The other catch is the generous scholarship Northeastern is giving me - about 70% of my tuition. With the scholarship and the paid 6 mo residency (if I play my cards right), I could, possibly, get out of B-school debt free. What would GMAT club do? PS. I would love to get some insight on BU's MBA program from students or graduates or anyone who knows! I should mention that I'm interested in using my MBA to crack into the business side of health care.

I should mention that I'm interested in using my MBA to crack into the business side of health care. I was about to endorse Northeastern until I saw the health care blurb in your post. BU and Northeastern are close in location, if you enjoyed the area around Northeastern, you'll enjoy BU. The main difference is... BU's area is a bit more collegey. I would reachout to current students, and see how their recruiting process is going... I think it would be easier to get the job you want out of BU, but I don't know for sure. Good Luck!
