"I found it very pricey, but the name recognition has been useful."

"Bring your interests and experiences. As an emerging field capturing students from all types of backgrounds, GW's Data Science program is cleverly designed to bring them into the field. Comprehensive theory, practical approach, & classmates from every discipline. The program consists of three core courses: -Intro to Data Science -Data Warehousing -Intro to Data Mining These will be your foundation for the remaining 7 electives which range from Econometrics to Machine Learning. A solid grasp of linear algebra, and probability theory will save you hours of ad hoc studying. Programming proficiency isn't required going in, but having a general grasp will free you up to focus on the task at hand, such as image processing, pattern recognition, or a task of your own design! In such a new field there are many rabbit holes an eager researcher may find themselves in, but blending your own goals and ideas will help uphold the context and focus around the subject matter. All-in-all a great program with great educators, all supporting a great field with a growing community of practitioners, and domains of application."

"Tell us about your college experience.College was just okay. Though I was on a scholarship, I felt that being at school at GW may not have been the worth the investment for most. In class, I do not necessarily believe that some professors were remotely worth while, but there were few. Overall, GW was a good fit for me because I had plenty of opportunities I know I would not have had otherwise, including being a White House intern, and studying abroad several times. do believe because of location and name recognition. I am very grateful for the opportunities I had beyond the classroom.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?I would not change my degree, but I would have continued with a language course. I believe this to be important for people who want to work the [international] business industry.What advice can you offer other students?Apply to any and every scholarship programs you can, even if you do not meet all the requirements. You never know who may review your application. If you can go to school [for close to or completely] free, DO. There is no greater feeling than being educated and not owing anyone a penny! Study a subject that will keep you happy, BUT also employed, paid, and with shelter and food, as you save. Living paycheck to paycheck or no check should not be an option for you. That is bare minimum, and with an education you should strive for more. Always stay ahead of the ball for your career. NO one will care for you as much as you do."

"Pros: Overall good university,nice campus, DC is a great place with a lot of opportunities for gov. jobs (international development etc, politics) and federal consulting. People are great (both students and in the surrounding DC area), most of the professors are great as well. Cons: Not much career prospects for international students (federal jobs require clearance),a lot of other strong universities in the area + other Americans come from top schools to work in DC. Outside of gov-t and politics, alumni base is not that strong, business school is ranked somewhere between 50 and 60, career service is targeted on undergrads and MBAs/Eliott School grads. GWU is more like a one dimensional school...Good for International Affairs (Elliot school degrees), maybe Law and Healthcare and thats probably it..."

"I like GW and think the best parts are the surrounding area and the GWSB career center!"
