Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2019

I chose the program thinking it was highly rated. I did fine in the program, but it is very poorly run. Little to no assistance from instructors. You must find your own clinical sites with no aid or guidance from the school. Program is extremely disorganized and staff cares very little about students. Staff can be degrading in addition to lacking knowledge and insight. Almost all of my classmates regret choosing this school for the FNP program.

Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2017

I received a top notch education at GW. The professors were phenomenal and even though the courses were online, the classes are set up to where you feel like you are sitting in a classroom with everyone. This program was very difficult, but definitely worth the journey. I have learned how to look for and find answers to very difficult topics. The professors went out of their way to help the students learn. I definitely feel prepared for a great career in law.

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: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 1993

Loved the campus and worked there as well. The program was a perfect match for my skills and interests - and there were many options for electives. The faculty were well-known in the field. However, not all were great teachers although they were great mentors and very supportive advisors. The focus of the program was laying a theoretical foundation and building practical skills in the field of organization development. From there I was able to practice and go on to build another doctoral program in OD in Minnesota. I would have enrolled in the PhD in organizational psychology, instead of the EdD, which is viewed by some as less rigorous. Find your passion, find the best school that offers advanced graduate programs in your field, learn all you can, network like crazy, and do what you love to do.
