Hi this session is very useful. Listing my questions below.

  1. I have not been offered any scholarships/ assistantships during admission so the fees & expenses will be mammoth. Just for the sake of the excellent CO-OP program is it worth preferring NE over other similarly ranked universities?
  2. From my research, I’ve found that Northeastern doesn’t offer aid to international students. Is there any way to bag scholarships/assistantships? Do you have any suggestions on this?
  3. Northeastern has 4 course hours for each course and we need to complete 32 course hours, i.e. 8 courses. How hard is it to do a part-time job and manage studies? How easy are the part-time jobs to get?
  4. Could you please talk about living costs and monthly expenses at Northeastern, as Boston can be an expensive place for students.

Hi there, thanks for doing this. Should be quite helpful.

So, I’ll probably be applying for fall 2020.

  1. I wanted to know if getting a computer science degree with a specialization in Cyber security makes more sense or just a MS in Cyber security. If yes what is the difference.

  2. Is it true, it is difficult to get a job in the US, because security related degrees need a security clearance?

  3. How competitive is the NEU Cyber Security course. And any suggestions you might have for a person with a low CGPA, but a good GRE, TOEFL and a excellent profile.

  4. I have research experience, my papers have been accepted but not published yet, still under processing. Will the admission committee consider that?

This is a general question not necessarily linked to NEU.
What is the procedure of applying to university scholarships?
Does the university automatically considers us for scholarship when we send an application based on our profile, or is there a different procedure to avail scholarships?

Hi,
What will be the course duration of MS in CS, if I do a co-op of 4, 6 or 8 months? I am concerned that the money I gain during co-op will offset the living costs and other expenses due to the extra duration required to complete the course.

Are you able to pay for expenses and loans from the salary from co-op. I already have an admit for Computer Science. Can you shed some light on how good the program is for research and then getting a job later through this. Do you suggest the college for MS in CS generaly and not for Cybersecurity in particular
