Hi! I got accepted into the nursing program and I have a friend who got accepted into the Physical Therapy program aswell as Emory but for a biology major with a pre-physical therapy track. Can you tell me anything about the nursing program? Also, can you tell me about the physical therapy program for her. And whats your opinion about the biology major thing?
Congrats to you and your friend!
I don’t know much about the nursing program but I do know that it is a very successful program, with clinicals built in every semester to give you a well-rounded experience working in different settings as well as very diverse coops. Is there anything in particular that you would like to know?
As far as PT- the difference between going here and going to Emory on a pre-PT track is that here your friend would be able to get her bachelors and doctorate in 6 years. It’s an accelerated program, so students in the program do not need to apply to a separate graduate program, instead they start in the program immediately. Speaking from experience, since I decided too late that I wanted to go into PT, it’s a much better idea to just do the accelerated program if your friend is sure about PT. She will get to bypass the application and GRE process required to apply for PT school, which believe me, was difficult! Also, PT school is getting harder and harder to get into, that if she’s already in a program, she might as well stick with it. If she realizes later that PT is not for her, then it’s extremely easy to switch out, as oppose to applying into a PT program post undergraduate years.
Hope this helps and feel free to ask me any additional questions!!
Hope everyone had a great Easter! How old is too old to still be getting an Easter basket?!
Answer: never :)
Hi, Taarika! I'm going to be a freshman this fall at northeastern and I am super excited to begin my journey. I am from out of state and I was wondering if it is common for northeastern students to have a part time job given that the system is so centered around co-ops and internships. Thanks for your blog!
Congrats on Northeastern! I’m so excited for you!
As far as jobs go, it’s kind of half and half. Most students end up working after they complete their first coop because those employers will usually ask students to work part time after the 6 months. However, tons of students get jobs on campus either via work study or through Northeastern’s employment website that is full of jobs!
It’s mostly up to you as a student if you are able to balance work and schoolwork!
Good luck and let me know of you have any other questions!
Just got an email about picking up commencement tickets. I can’t believe graduation is a little over a month away! Time has FLOWN! As sad as I am to graduate, I’m finally starting to get excited for the future and for a new beginning. It’s kind of like how I felt when I was graduating high school- it’s a very bittersweet ending, but it’s nice to know that good things are to come! So for all of you reading this who are seniors and nervous about graduating, don’t be, the best is yet to come!
Hope you’re all enjoying the beautiful Tuesday! Hopefully this is a sign that Spring is almost here. OH PLEASE OH PLEASE OH PLEASE
Congratulations to Northeastern’s business school for ranking 25th in the country for undergraduate business schools!!
Hope everyone had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day weekend! On Saturday was our annual South Asian culture show called Nataraj. I’ve performed in it every year and was so sad that this was my last one :( all this graduation stuff is finally hitting me and I don’t know that I like it :(( but! I got to see my parents which was great and participate in some fun dances! Above is a picture of a few of us that performed in a South Indian dance!
Well, hello everyone!
I survived spring break and am back and tanner than EVER! Pictures to come! I had an absolute blast on the cruise and am so sad to be back to reality :( the good news is that Boston has great spring weather going on right now that I don’t hate one bit!
Yesterday I was lucky enough to meet President Aoun! I, along with the rest of the executive board for NU Science Magazine had the pleasure of meeting and talking to him about the growth of our magazine since we first founded it back in 2008, until now, and how we can make it grow in the future! Check out the photo of us all sitting with him. Try to ignore the fact that I’m clearly not photogenic….
Have a great Wednesday!
Sitting in the terminal waiting for our flight to San Juan!! Then off on a cruise through the south Caribbean for the next week with all my friends! Pictures to come! Happy Spring break :)
Just gotta get through this week then I’m off on a cruise with 16 of my friends through the South Caribbean for spring break!!!
Let’s hope this week FLIES!
Happy Monday people!
I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m a part of a non-profit on campus called Peer health exchange, where we teach health education to high school freshman in Boston. The staff office is located at One Beacon, on the 31st floor with the most gorgeous view of Boston. Right?!? I love this city.
