Graduation Year: 2003

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

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2012

Graduate and undergraduate programs at GWU are both high quality, but graduate programs seem to draw a broader range of students and experiences. The International Affairs program is very good as a terminal Masters program, with a focus on professional development and the flexibility to work or intern full or part time while attending.

Degree: Art History, Criticism and Conservation
Graduation Year: 2010

I had some really phenomenal professors at GW, especially in art history. However when I attended, my major required specific classes, such as senior seminars, but not many were offered. This meant that even if you were interested in a specific time period or subject matter, the advanced classes offered were limited. Yet even the classes I took out of necessity were well taught and interesting. I also enjoyed a wide range of classes outside of my major, from psychology, to literature, to cardio kick-boxing.

Highly competent faculty: mostly adjuncts who have day jobs in the field they're teaching. Ideal location in Washington DC.

The program offers great flexibility for working or interning students. It is a professional-oriented program, with many amenities to help with professional development in addition to academic development.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2012

Great location for internships and a fun college experience. The administration is terrible and could not care less about the students, however. Going here will help you get a high-paying, rewarding job.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (NP)
Graduation Year: 2015

While an online program offers flexibility and convenience my experience is that you lose the connectivity and personal attention a traditional program provides. In my experience I felt like I was working alone and when issues arose it was difficult to connect to professors on a human level I instead felt like a "student". I had started my FNP at a different institution where I attended classes and participated in groups and I felt like I was making a much larger impact then at GWU. Trying to solve problems on a blackboard can get frustrating as you are in your Masters program and as well dealing with children, husbands, employment and life issues. GWU requires you come in for testing at various points in your school program and again it felt unorganized and not true to life.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Business--or something more technical.

What advice can you offer other students?

Do what you love for fun, major in something that can sustain the lifestyle you wish to have. Move t the city where you see yourself and is best for your major:: Politics: DC, Arts: NYC, Natural Sciences: coast, etc. And yes, Undergraduate is just as important as Masters bc without a good foundation you cant move ahead.
