Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2010

The professors and staff with whom I interacted on a daily basis were, for the most part, fantastic, and I certainly received a great education. However, the "support" services (e.g. financial aid office) were difficult to reach and not always easy to deal with. GWU is also extremely expensive - one of the most expensive schools in the country, in fact. If I were to do things over again, I'd consider some other schools/programs in addition to GWU. I think I would have received just as good an education at less cost, and with fewer headaches along the way. However, GWU's name recognition does help when it comes to job searches. I'm just not sure it has helped me enough to justify the loans I'll be repaying for the next 25 years.

Degree: Health Sciences

My program was rigorous but had phenomenal professors. The school was pricey, but I believe the quality education I received was worth the price and set me up for better career opportunities.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

School with great connections, but administratively suffers creating bureaucratic issues and bloated tuition. The professors were well versed in academic as well as real-life scenarios. School provided exceptional flexibility to fit students' school schedules.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

GWU provides a quality education and is well respected. I took classes at night while I worked full-time. All of my classes were online and I greatly appreciated that flexibility. They do not offer too much financial support. They are somewhat flexible with class choice within curriculum.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2018

My experience at GW has been great thus far. The coursework and material are engaging, the professors are very knowledgeable and helpful, and the classroom environment is diverse and inspiring. I would not change my decision in attending GW because of the educational opportunities I have received and the support of the staff available.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2018

George Washington University Law School is a pillar of the community in Foggy Bottom. It has a huge alumni network, gives you a solid education, and has a very energetic atmosphere. Come here if you like to network - don't if you don't. I say that because you won't find a job from this school unless you are in the top 15% or you like to go out there and meet & greet people, take them out for coffee, etc.
