I have been working at Northwestern University part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Northwestern University has a nice campus. The living expense here is not very high. You can talk with the students here.

Cons

Winter is cold in Chicago. If you like cold weather, you will probably like to work and live here.

    I worked at Northwestern University as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    One of the greatest learning experiences I have had during my college career is the research opportunity I have been privileged with through the CURE summer research internship at Northwestern University. From attending talks by leaders in the field of oncology, to preparing abstracts and presenting my research findings, I had the opportunity to experience the trials and tribulations of an oncology researcher first-hand. The hours I spent in lab over the duration of summer 2011 have molded me into a much more patient experimenter and enabled me to become more disciplined - traits that will serve me well in any field.

    Cons

    Outside of the research experiences, the summer program was a bit lacking with regards to sight seeing, networking, and other activities. The program is strictly a research program so if you're looking to gain clinical experience you'll ought to look elsewhere.
