Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros include using the flexibility of learning online allowing me to live anywhere during the program. Cons include not being able to physically meet with my professors and cohort.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Most of the teachers are incredibly useful and well connected. It is located in DC but not directly downtown like George Washington. The campus is small in a good way. The networking is good. As a graduate student, I have a lot of work, and therefore do not know exactly what the social life is like on campus but I have heard it isn't spectacular for undergrads. I am overall happy with this school.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel a pro is being able to learn about topics of interest to me in Spanish. A con is that the program doesn't have as much resources as others int he University.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe an MBA is useful in all walks of life. I am currently pursuing an MBA with American University because I believe it will help promote me in my current job. I do not see any CONs with my current graduate program.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

WCL is a great school. However, considering our sinking rating, it is harder to justify the cost. The student population is extremely diverse and everyone is welcoming.

Note this is my first semester, so some services offered by the school have not come into fruition.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

American University's Washington College of Law offers a lot to students in terms of networking and professional opportunity. There is an understanding that to heighten your prospects upon graduation, work experience in relevant fields is a must. Being located in DC, there is a huge competitive edge for full-time law students who can intern during the semester for up to 20 hours a week after the first year. I have really enjoyed the professors so far in my career here, and the students seem to be very well-rounded with very interesting backgrounds. The coolest thing about this law school is the international opportunity both in dual law degree programs and the professionals they expose us to in symposiums and other more intimate networking events.

The law school provides a great education! I enjoy the faculty and all my classes. The cost is high and the financial aid is not extensive.
