My experience and challenge at Northeastern University
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have had a good exposure and experience at the University, I was awarded a study Dean's Merit scholarship of 30% and the online study portal is perfect and easy to access class. My only biggest challenge is affording the remaining tuition.
