It's a well-renowned school, but needs some development work on my particular program. Love the classmates I've met through my degree program.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

The Health Information Technology Program at George Washington University is one of a kind. The school really understands the real world situation in regards to HIT and draws that information in to class to make our learning relevant. Professors are very knowledgeable on the subject matters and the program keep you connected with all the who's who in the industry. The only con of the program is that it is based online so it requires much independent work.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The full-time MBA program of the George Washington University is really a great MBA program. There are only 3 main things that you should consider before applying for GWU: first, Washington DC is expensive. Secondly, the university does not support or ease the way for the international students. Therefore, it is a little bit hard for an international student to pay the tuition and also to live in DC without any financial assistance. Finally, as the city is dominated by federal agencies and institutions, it might be hard for you to get a job. On the other hand, the program, curriculum, students enrolled and also the professors are really great. I strongly recommend it.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

The Epidemiology department has some great professors who have worked in the field for a long time. They are knowledgable and great to learn from. One thing I do not like is the exams have mostly been multiple choice exams, and I am not sure in a program like epidemiology that is the best way to measure competency. Washington D.C. is also VERY expensive in terms of cost of living

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

Attending graduate school for Higher Education in Washington, DC is extremely beneficial for the reason that there are numerous institutions of higher education in the area. My classmates and I have the opportunity to obtain graduate assistantships at a number of these schools which is helpful to gain a vast array of knowledge about various institution types. One of the cons about the program is that it seems very repetitive in terms of the courses and readings that we need to do. Some of the faculty members are great however others just make me reconsider being in this field.

George Washington University is a great place for education and opportunities to network, build your resume, and find jobs. However, it's situated right in the heart of Washington DC, so cost of living is high. Tuition is also high! However, it's worth it.
