A school that was once prestigious but is now burdened with scandals and intense competition from regional as well as international universities. For example, Northeastern University has co-op and its students are now infiltrating investment banking, research, public accounting, and consulting.

While the school has money and is well known, its downfall is coming.
Man I love Harvard University and my degree is great, but not as useful and powerful as the kid from Northeastern University or Tufts University.
