Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

The George Washington University is an excellent choice for undergraduate admissions! With it's location in the heart of DC, the culture is unbeatable. Plus, all students attending for 4 years get to live in DC during a US Presidential Election and Inauguration, which is a priceless experience. Course and academics are incredible and you will have a leg up from other students who do not get the outlet of DC in their fingertips.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Good classes, professors, and workload. Campus / city life is unique experience. School is exceptionally generous with scholarship. Study Abroad opportunities are abundant and lots of stipends / grants to be found. Regarding politics, there is always a visiting conference or speaker.

Degree: Economics, Other
Graduation Year: 2010

GW's breadth of opportunities, while never handed to you, are there for the taking, helped make the GW experience unique and memorable. Between the many clubs, the internship opportunities and the relationships I built, it is undeniable that my experience at GW helped me successfully enter the career stage of my life. Take advantage of as much as you can, while also taking care to not spread yourself too thin.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2003

GWU was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I received a dynamic education, was able to connect with a relatively diverse student body and lived in a city at the center of global governance. If you are interested in a career in public policy, nongovernmental organizations or business, GWU is the place to be, offering a plethora of internship and job opportunities in all of these areas.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011

If I was required to pay full tuition I would be much more critical of this university. As I received a substantial scholarship, I am able to objectively look at the pros and cons of the school as a whole. The education was fine, but not outstanding. I did feel that the school tended to nickel and dime the students quite often with minimal support from the staff. A mediocre school with a higher-end name attached to it.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2014

I felt that the Elliott School of International Affairs was an excellent institution for me to receive my education in International Affairs. I had the opportunity to learn from professors who were professionals or had been professionals in the subject they were teaching. For example, my International Economics, Finance professor was a consultant at the World Bank. This was invaluable to me as a student.

Degree: Political Communication
Graduation Year: 2017

Honestly, the George Washington University was the place that I needed to be for my degree in Political Communication. I will be continuing my education there to get my Master's in Media and Strategic Communication, because I know that the School of Media and Public Affairs is the right fit for my interests and learning style. However, if you are not interested in studying one of the degrees that GWU specializes in (i.e. Political Communication, Journalism and Mass Communication, Political Science, International Affairs, and a select few other science degrees), this school is not worth the money or the frustration that comes from dealing with its poorly run administration. I have loved my time at GWU; the friends I have made here and the experiences I have had will last me a life time. I would consider a less expensive, and more affordable option, however, if you are not set on a major and will possibly need loans or financial assistance, as it is hard to come by at this university.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

I loved the undergraduate public health program. It's a small program, so you have smaller class sizes and get to know your professors. Being in DC is an added benefit because there's so much to explore around the city and many job and internship opportunities.

Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2008

GWU provides me with the foundation needed to succeed in life and in professional setting. I am happy to be graduated from this school and would like to continue my higher education here. Please accept this application and considered me for the scholarship!

GW is a great school with many possibilities and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to go to school near D.C.
