Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

A very high cost school in a high cost city, but worth every penny. George Washington University is one of America's finest institutions of higher education.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

The strength of this program is in its faculty. Not only are they leaders in the field of public health but they are very committed to their students and courses that they teach. The networking available at this institution is very good and made even better by its location in downtown Washington, D.C close to many national and international public health organizations. The one downside is the cost of a degree from this institution, it is much higher than other equitable universities and should be considered when deciding on which school to attend.

GW's Art Therapy Program has an exceptional staff and an outstanding connection to the surrounding community for one-of-a-kind hands on experiences.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The program does a great job incorporating real-world applications into the curriculum. I feel like I'm learning the necessary technical skills for my future career, while also improving my communication and presentation skills, which are arguably just as important for career success. Thanks to the program staff, I'm excited and ready to graduate and put my new abilities to the test.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The program provides an extremely valuable network of alumni that go out of their way to help you. The downside is that living and transportation is so expensive for a student. Although the classes could definitely be improved, the overall value of the program is exceptional.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The George Washington University (GWU) has an amazing approach to its' Masters of Science in Project Management (MSPM) program. One Program, Two Flexible Modes (Campus and Distance) The Master of Science in Project Management program is designed to meet the needs of working professionals who want to enhance their ability to integrate complex projects, motivate people, and achieve cost-effective results. With campus and distance learning courses that are essentially identical, students have the flexibility to complete the degree from virtually anywhere. This is exactly what I get out of GWU's MSPM program!! The only con I see is the price, hence why I am applying for this scholarship.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

By far the biggest "pro" for my counseling program is the quality of the instructors. The faculty at GW are world-class and I could not have gotten a better education elsewhere. I feel very connected to the school and to the community, and I feel that going to school in the nation's capital has afforded me networking opportunities that I would have never gotten elsewhere. The downside to GW is that it is very expensive, but I absolutely feel like my coursework, classmates and professors have been worth every penny.

The GWU MBA program is very hands on. You get a personal experience with the faculty and staff, and the networking is great amongst the students.
