What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ok so here's the deal. Academically I wouldn't have traded Georgetown for almost anywhere else. The caliber of students is incredible, and the diversity of backgrounds can lead to some incredibly productive conversations. The teachers are generally good, but can vary widely. There is space on this campus for everyone. THAT BEING SAID... I'm really writing this review to address some cultural issues which I believe students should be aware of. 1st: Georgetown is stingy. I mean really stingy. The dorms consistently have mold and water damage - there isn't a single person here who doesn't know at least one person who has had to move out of their dorm for a period of time due to latent maintenance issues. The buildings are (generally) extremely poorly maintained. 2nd: Georgetown is absolutely horrible when it comes to handling issues of SEXUAL ASSAULT and MINORITY RIGHTS (putting these in caps so hopefully people stop to read the review and are made aware of the issue). I'm not a super liberal person. I'm pretty centrist actually, and I'm not an activist (not that those are bad things) on many things myself. That being said, I just have to lament the sad state of things when it comes to CREATING A SAFE ENVIRONMENT for women especially but people in general. Women have been raped here. A friend of mine was raped. I was a witness for her Title IX investigation and throughout the process Georgetown was nothing but difficult and insensitive. The statistics themselves are shocking. 1/4 women who finish a four year degree here have been sexually assaulted at some point, yet between 2014-2017 only 14 hearings were held. Think about that. This is an institutional issue here, and one every student (male or female) should be aware of before coming here. In conclusion: If you're interested in Georgetown, know that it IS an amazing academic school! Professors do care about you, and your peers are generally incredibly awesome people - but know there are drawbacks, and serious ones. Sorry if this came off too hard, but I just think more people need to know what exists beyond the tour guides and sunny brochure photos.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is very beautiful and although the architecture of the facilities are old, the inside is continuously renovated. There are many options for on- and off-campus housing, which is great for students who live out of state. Although the food in the cafeteria can be improved, there are many affordable places to eat within and outside of campus. The campus lifestyle balances the rigor of academics very well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am surprised every single day by the largely diverse population and interests of the students at this University. I do wish that there were better Facilities and Management teams, they often take a while to respond to urgent needs such as mold and AC problems. Besides that, I am happy with my living situation and the convenience of having a small campus. All of my classes have demanded that I be the best student that I can be and I love the way that I am challenging intellectually by both my professors and peers. I have grown as a human being since being on this campus and I could not be happier to call myself a Hoya.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall experience at Georgetown has been positive. Professors/TAs have incredibly high standards in academic performance. There were a few classes that consider a 93% a B+. Smaller classes can get competitive. You see a lot of homeless people sleep in the library study rooms during the winter. They should have the social worker there to help them out. I always feel bad when I see GUPD kick them out. LAU 2nd floor is a hormone-filled circus no studying is accomplished there. Everyone socially and politically wants to move mountains, and I am always surprised by where that attitude takes them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgetown University is filled with many amazing students and faculty. There is easy some resource that is available to you if you are in need of self-care or just simply someone to talk to. The only cons are the old buildings offered for housing, and the lack of funding to fix these facilities permanently. Our elevators in some dorms go out at least once a month. Another con is the cost of attendance, but I'm sure that is the same case for many other Universities. I can honestly say that Georgetown tries to help us overcome this through financial aid. They'll attempt to pay for all of the tuition with their scholarship program and student loans, which leaves students having to only pay for housing and food plans as needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgetown University is a great institution. It is quite pricey, but for the most part, you do get your money's worth. The campus is very collaborative despite its initial intimidating appearance. I am a first-year, and am happy to say that I look forward to the coming years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgetown is great overall. In terms of academics, the curriculum is challenging, the students tend to be very bright, the class sizes tend to be small, and learning and professional development seems to be a priority for most. More practically, it has a beautiful campus, but the amenities aren't that great. Food on campus is expensive, and the Georgetown neighbourhood really doesn't offer much in the way of cheap and healthy meal options. Also, the Jesuit presence at Georgetown is definitely prominent, which is extremely bizarre if you haven't been exposed to religious influences. It is especially hard to swallow when it comes to health insurance and services available to female students. (Really try to get your own insurance as a woman attending this school. The practices are discriminatory and are designed to serve men much better than women, which I suppose is a reflection of the US health care system more broadly, but it is next level here due to the Jesuit influence.)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgetown University is an excellent school. I love it. Some of the facilities, such as residence halls, do need some repairs and updates, primarily due to age. Professors are approachable and accessible always, and fellow students are always willing to help out. There is definitely a "work hard, play hard" mentality at Georgetown University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I could not imagine myself anywhere else. Georgetown was the perfect size for me (mid-sized), and the professors are top-notch. Academically, I feel challenged to do my best but supported all the while. I would highly recommend Georgetown to prospective students seeking to study international affairs, as there is no better school for the subject than the School of Foreign Service.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I took a few classes at Georgetown University recently and am considering attending McDonough and Georgetown University Law Center. Speaking to the magic of the undergraduate experience, I can say that the academic experience here is genuinely top notch and very challenging. A lot of people want to attend Georgetown University so much so that a lot of people who don't actually attend Georgetown feel enticed to stock up on Georgetown paraphernalia and express their infatuation with the hill around various parts of D.C. And yet so very few of those people actually want to do the amount of work that is required at this university. This is not an easy university by any means but the kind of students and faculty you will meet here are academically brilliant and stoic. Not to mention the number of Yale Law alums this university has produced.
