"Georgetown gave me the best four years of my life. I loved being somewhat secluded in a world-class city. I loved the diversity and the activities and the social life, especially the sports. And of course, all while getting the best education in the world."

"Quality of professors is outstanding, make sure you go to class and use those office hours. Campus is in a beautiful neighborhood on the outskirts of DC. Seems to be a work hard/play hard school- not many frats/sororities, but clubs/organizations throw house parties and there are lots of nearby bars. The history of the school and the beauty of the campus, you can't beat it. 10/10 would love to go to college again"

"The professors are great and the size of the school allows Georgetown Law to offer a huge number of classes. However, the probably greatest benefit is the school's location in Washington, DC. There are so many events, internships and professional opportunities available that you can make the most of your time here both academically and professionally. The only drawback I have experienced is that the law school is separate from the main campus and coordinating between the two is not always easy."

"Fantastic law school. The professors for the most part are incredible, and the student body and atmosphere fostered by the school is one of collaboration and support, rather than competition."
International politics grad 2014

"Georgetown was the best possible place for me to do a degree in International Politics. I learned from both academics and practitioner professors, had the opportunity to do seven internships at amazing organizations and government agencies over three years, had a great network of friends and acquaintances who were smart and passionate about the same things I am. If you want to study politics or international politics, go to Georgetown - and get ready."

"I enjoy that the Public Relations and Corporate Communications Masters of Professional Studies program is interactive and hands on. The course selections are extremely tailored and industry specific.The program allows its students to apply the skills learned in real life industry settings. Georgetown has a excellent network of public relations professionals that come back to lecture and provide industry insights. There are also a variety of professional development workshop to prepare students for the workplace. The program caters to working professionals, so most classes are in the evening. This does not allow for much scheduling flexibility."

"Georgetown is a phenomenal school! The faculty in the linguistics department are well-known in their respective areas, and they are really interested in working with and mentoring the students. The classes are interesting, and they teach you how to explain your research to non-linguists. DC is a great city, but housing is expensive. Also, the main campus has free shuttles from metro stops, but there is no metro right in Georgetown."

"The Graduates career program is more geared towards US trained lawyers or those that are fresh out of school. As an established professional it may be difficult to find it very useful. There is not much in terms of financial aid at the school. However the lecturers are great at what they do being leaders in their field"

"The cons for my program is that it is difficult to get to know my classmates. The program is designed to accommodate those who have full-time jobs and does not require extensive group projects or other ways for classmates to get to know each other more. The pros for my program is that the students come from various backgrounds with rich knowledge that benefits everyone in the class."

"My graduate program is extremely valuable to me because of its direct correlation to the career field. I feel that I am being well prepared for a job. The biggest downside to the program is the high cost of the tuition and also living in Washington, DC."
