Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The are a couple of problems with the program. First, GW loves hiring Adjunct Professors, which can be really great or really bad. Some of the Adjuncts I had were incredible and others were some of the worst professors I have ever had. So the problem is that consistency of quality professors. Second, they are marketing the program to the wrong demographic. They market the program as if it an Organizational Industrial Psychology program, which it is not. Additionally they have been recruiting the newly graduated students, but the program is designed for working professionals who have been graduated for a while. This program is designed to make business consultants and thus they should advertise it correctly and to the right people.

D.C. is continuously rated as one of the most expensive places to live. If you plan to attend GW, make sure that you are willing to compromise on your apartment size, living with roommates, or can deal with a long metro ride. Even though the program can be done in 2 years, that time line is not encouraged by the all of the staff. Make sure that you go at your own pace, but you can't just take 9 credits and expect to graduate in 2 years. On the positive side, the students are from all over the world, and the D.C. area has a lot to offer.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

GWU is an excellent school and has an amazing reputation in the Physical Therapy world do to our outstanding professors who are able to put the students as their top priority, but practice and do research as well. There is a rich environment of helping and caring within the professors and the students. We do anything we can to help each other succeed. I also love being in the DC area where we have a multitude of top quality hospitals and rehab clinics, not to mention the close proximity to the politicians who can help make change to PT policy.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a great program. I am an international school. I believe that the students of emerging and 3rd world countries must get the education from western Universities like George Washington School of Business to bring changes in human life in our society. It has opened my eyes and build enormous confidence in me to perform much better in the professional arena. It's really a great school. I wish I could have studied in this school before 10 years. I could make a lot of difference in the society - in the world.

The program is very good, but very DC-focused. Wanting to shift back West makes this rather difficult. The night classes are very useful for interning or working.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

I'm getting an excellent, well rounded education that is absolutely preparing me for my field from an institution with a great reputation. Although the cost and therefore loans are daunting, it's worth it.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

GW is a very excellent school. I am getting a solid education here. I am positive that I will be able to get a job in my career field once I am done with school here. The negatives are that they weren't exactly honest about what you were getting when you entered the program when it came to things like financial aid and program length. Also, the cost of living is ridiculously expensive.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The PMBA program at GW has been great thus far. I was an undergrad at GW and had a great experience. The graduate program lives up to that. Thus far the professors are good and fair. While many of them have outside jobs, they care about their areas of study and students.
