I really enjoy the flexibility in being able to explore my many interests - this is one of the benefits of the quarter system. I also think that Northwestern students are very similar in that they are all very driven, however, we differ in our personalities and passions which I appreciate.
The quarter system does move very fast and sometimes you have less downtime than you would at a semester school.
I liked the wealth of opportunities and the expertise of the professors.
Very high cost of tuition.
I love the sense of community and campus feel. We have access to the great city of Chicago but are far away enough to not feel overwhelmed by city life. The midwestern culture is so great as well.
You should be aware of the weather. Coming from California, I didn't understand the implications of being in a state with actual seasonal changes and it is something I wish I had prepared for more.
