Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The overal program is great. There are lots of positives for George Washington University (GWU). GWU is well known for the Clinical Research Administration program. The faculty members are very supportive and available to assist students from skyping, conference meeting, or emailing. Throughout the semester, the faculty members are very open and willing to change academic program as needed from student feedbacks and recommendations. Importantly, the overall Clinical Research Administration (CRA) program is academically challenging for all student levels. Although, GWU is a great school, there are some downfalls. The cost of GWU is quite expensive. Even though, GWU is located in Washington DC with so many opportunities for work and internships, the school does not offer recommendations or connecting students to internships. With the off campus programs, there seems to be less resources for internship opportunities in the medical research field. In conclusion, with all the pros and cons, GWU has a great CRA program. I recommend GWU to students because of the great CRA program.

GW is a really good school and it is a good program to get into. You will really learn a lot from educated people that are currently in the field themselves. The negative thing about GW is how expensive it is to attend and the cost of living is ridiculously high.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel like I am getting a quality education at a quality institution. So far, my classes have been challenging and I have grown in my career specific knowledge. The cons of my program is the amount of help/involvement from professors. I have not met with my advisor once, however, I have been able to successfully navigate the program by myself.

Workload is heavy and intense. With online study, you need to be self motivated to manage your time well enough to meet deadlines. Coursework is timely and interesting. Professors are very involved in the course and easy to contact if needed.

I am in a GW satellite campus. This area is still developing and the cost of living is high.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

In the Movie "A League of Their Own", Tom Hanks plays the character of the Team’s Coach and instructs one of the players that "If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. It's the hard that makes it great." I keep reminding myself of that movie quote because of the challenges that Graduate School presents. It keeps me motivated to work full time job, maintain a family/household, and attend Graduate School full time. As an American minority woman, I am privileged to attend Graduate School and have an opportunity to further my education. In other countries, some women do not even have the right to drive a car, let alone attend Graduate School. Graduate school has already started to expand my knowledge and job related skills which will hopefully lead to better career prospects. Graduate School has provided the exciting opportunity to work and study with some of the leaders in my current industry. My hard work and commitment can be seen through my current graduate school 4.0 GPA. However, tuition costs, family/household costs, and no employer tuition assistance can be financially challenging. I would name these high tuition costs and maintaining family/household costs as the major challenge of Graduate School.

The International Affairs graduate program at GWU is excellent, although it comes at a high financial cost. There are so many options for courses and sessions, which is very helpful.
