What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgetown can definitely have a toxic, high-stress culture, and coming from the west coast, I was definitely not prepared for the east coast preppy-ness. It also surprises me that for a school with a student body drenched in wealth, they do a very poor job of maintaining the facilities and financial aid for middle class students is terrible. That being said, the school has its perks and comes with some amazing opportunities, so it's really up to you to decide if its worth it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgetown University provides not only academic rigor, but has a reputation to uphold as it is one of the oldest and most renown universities. Therefore, being a student at this university pushes me beyond my normal academic limits to mold me into a better student and one day, a better physician. I believe Georgetown University will provide the most opportunistic environment to fulfill my dream of becoming a medical doctor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Georgetown University is positive. It's an institution that has numerous opportunities, especially with access to the heart of the capital of the United States. The alumni access is impeccable, and the assistance after graduation is something that I expect to be exceptional. Once a Hoya, always a Hoya.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Despite the amount of money Georgetown has, the facilities are a little dated and often are not up to a good standard. The food is also decent. However, it's the academics and student life that is really attractive about the university. That's what has drawn me to the school and kept me there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Georgetown has something for everyone wether it be academic, athletic, or club activities. The classes here are very small meaning that you are a receiving a more personalized education. The professors here are also very understanding of students' life outside of the classroom and are very flexible. We may not have the flashiest facilities, but I think that is what makes it fun. The University's location allows its students to have a substantial amount of opportunities for just about anything: study abroad, job opportunities, forming connections, and more. Additionally, there is a very strong connection with Georgetown alumni which opens the door for even more opportunities. Being in the nation's capital means that there is always something to do around campus, as well.

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.
