What is your overall opinion of this school?
George Washington is a very strange kind of school, where I can honestly say that FEW students are truly happy. The only students that thrive there are kids who already know others in the city, are very rich and into Greek life, or resign themselves to WEIRD lives on the Vern. Everyone on the Vern is very typical of the Vern, and normal people know to stay away. Almost everyone I know transferred, is transferring, or has thought of transferring. The only people who stay are people who are too lazy to transfer, or had such lame high school lives they don't even know that George Washington doesn't offer a normal college nightlife. The classes aren't bad, the location is fine if you want to live in DC (though I would NEVER recommend living in DC), but the people are what ruin it. Furthermore, most of them are not even intelligent but kids who just worked hard or bought their way in. I was horrified by the incredibly low degree of discussion in the classes. People even in the International Affairs school barely knew ANYTHING about world affairs and struggled with the most simple facts and concepts. It was nothing short of embarrassing. I was honestly embarrassed I had considered George Washington a good school. In the end, the fact is that you're not going to like this school. Basically no one does.
