    No, it is not a typo. There actually is a Northeastern University, and as far as anyone can tell, the founder was not trying to pass it off as the more well-known Northwestern University.

    Established in 1854 and located in Boston, Northeastern University was recently ranked 80th amongst American universities by the U.S. News and World Report. The same publication, however, ranked Northeastern number one in terms of best career services and number two amongst “up-and-coming national universities.”

    Northeastern boasts a strong premedical program, recently forging a partnership with the Tufts University School of Medicine. Other popular majors include business, engineering, and health services. Students who are especially ambitious can enroll in the honors program.

    Northeastern University’s true claim to fame, though, is its co-op internship program, one of the largest and oldest of its kind in the entire world. Students can alternate between academic studies and a paid job which is related to their major, graduating in either four or five years. The school regularly places its students in jobs at Disney, Sony, Goldman Sachs, the White House, United Nations, and more. It also provides housing for co-op students in New York City and Washington D.C.

    Moreover, Northeastern is located in the quintessential college town, with schools like Tufts University and Boston University in close proximity. From Fenway Park to shopping centers, there is simply no end to the recreational, cultural, and culinary activities that students can partake in.

    Unsurprisingly, getting into Northeastern is no easy task. It has the third highest number of applicants – behind New York University and Boston University – amongst American private colleges, and only 35.2% of applicants to the class of 2013 were successful.

    Like most private universities, Northeastern charges a high tuition - $34,950 a year to be exact. All students and applicants are encouraged to apply for financial aid, which is both need and merit-based.
