Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2012

Professors were thought leaders in their field. Amazing academic resources. Suuuuuuuper expensive. Not a strong sense of community if that's what you're looking for. Extremely smart peers that challenge you. I fealt out of place as a scholarship student in a school full of rich kids at first, but the relationships that were made and the friends that I still have were priceless. There is nowhere quite like DC, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2009

It gave me the city life experience but as a result I missed out on the college campus experience, there was no football team and greek life was a little weird and spread out so there wasn't a big sense of community for me. The statistics department was FANTASTIC, small and intimate with incredible teachers but I found the other departments somewhat lacking.

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

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

GWU is a very challenging school based upon your school. It is also a very expensive school, with very sophisticated night life. The social life at GWU is dominated by either greek life affiliation, political affiliation, or socioeconomic status.

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: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2007

George Washington University is the perfect choice for someone interested in making an impact through policy, science, engineering or any other field with the nation's capital as your playground. If you want an isolated campus, there are plenty of other options, but GW provides endless real-world work/internship/education opportunities. The GW brand is strong and growing.

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.
