What is your overall opinion of this school?

For politically active students, it is the absolute perfect place to be. In the center of the nation's capital, the George Washington University never fails to exceed my expectations. A safe city as well as one filled with culture is a perfect location for a young adult. I have truly fallen in love with the university and the city and it is where I am meant to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Washington University is a wonderful school. It is incredibly diverse- no one has the same experience. It is very underrated for its academics in my opinion. So far, the only thing I feel the school is lacking is school spirit; though, in some groups, school spirit is everything. My professors are all extremely qualified and invested in students' learning. One thing to know before you commit to GW: everyone is an adult doing their own thing at this school so do not expect anyone to baby you or show you the "correct" path. Lastly, for kids thinking about applying, the honors program has been a really valuable addition to my experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly enjoy attending this institution. The location could not be better for someone intending to enter international politics after graduation. I generally enjoy all of my classes and getting to know all of my professors. The Foggy Bottom neighbourhood is a fantastic place to spend your college years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Washington, to me, is the greatest school in the country. What we lack in prestige is well made up for in excellent facilities, professors, and activities. Being at GW has changed my life, and I am a better person because of it. I would recommend the school to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think attending school in the heart of DC is a very unique experience and I would not trade it for anything. It is pricey but they usually give good financial aid packages. The food is also unique because there is not really a dining hall so you can go to places around campus and it gives you a lot of freedom to get good food! The housing is very nice and is mostly apartment style living. Most rooms are two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room area with 4 roommates. The exception to this is some freshman living and also the nice senior dorm where you get your own room. Another thing GW is known for is its internships. Overall I would recommend looking into GWU because it really forces you to transition into a new stage of your life!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Washington is a great school full of great students and resources. The campus is very urban and utilizes D.C life which includes stores, food vendors and public transportation. Some dorms are good but some aren't, what is different is that dorms typically have their own bathrooms but one downside is that GW doesn't have dining halls.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The George Washington University is an amazing college. It’s filled with so much things to do and amazing people you’ll meet. I applied as an early decision student because I know this school would be perfect for me. It’s in DC and I know I’ll never be tired of it. There’s no other place I would rather be for undergrad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Washington University is a great place to be exposed to diverse and well developed world views. Additionally, there are countless opportunities both within the university and in Washington DC, but students must be motivated enough to take the initiative to find these opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Washington University is a really unique place and I'm really happy I came here but it has a lot of larger flaws that can't really be compensated for being in a city. I would boil the reasons its good down to the location, social experience, and academic environment. Being in D.C. is so exciting because it attracts so many important figures that you have the opportunity to see, so many interesting events like concerts and events, and fun experiences. I got to meet French President Emmanuel Macron, see John Mulaney and go to food festivals. I loved going from a really small and white school to a diverse and big school that made me experience a lot outside my comfort zone. Also, the academic environment is really special because everyone is really social aware and knowledgeable about different things. I don't like GW for more structural reasons like it's really expensive, this is including the cost of living is super expensive like food, housing, and just the more typical GW lifestyle. It's also really hard to get help from the university or even certain professors because it is such a large school. When I would go try to get help understanding financial aid or payment issues, the staff were incompetent or just didn't have interest in helping me. For professors, I know some really helpful ones who would do a lot for their students, but in general, the classes seem to rely a lot on TA's or just doing it on your own. But besides that, I took some really interesting classes and if you make the effort you can make them feel smaller or work hard to compensate for things you find missing in your classes. A lot of GW is what you make of it, and if you are up for the challenge it can work for you.
