Graduation Year: 2014

While the professors are great, the staff communicates very little with students regarding financial aid and future career opportunities.

MHSA program. Is very good at getting you in, but once you are in there is a lack of support. They require a "residency" experience to graduate. But will not help you apply for this. You write your own recommendation letters and the director of the program signs it. As for job? that's if you are lucky. Too costly for something that won't really be worth it. You can take electives at the MBA school. So that's a good thing because the finance prep this program provides is not sufficient. Pro: The DC metro area is great. Lots of intellectuals and a capital of our nation. Great scene for art, music and foodies

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

The biochemistry graduate program at George Washington is an excellent program in that the faculty strives to teach concepts that are relevant to today's research goals and technology. The program is small so students can readily gain access to faculty outside the classroom and the classes have been designed to give a broad foundation in the concepts of biochemistry while incorporating real world medical research/topics. The faculty also tries to be consciousnesses of the costs associated with the laboratory courses and they work to minimize that cost on the student. The only draw back is the constant revising of the program from year to year which results in certain classes no longer being offered or courses being combined together.

Great program with multiple connections for internships

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe this is an amazing program, but I believe the quality of the program is determined more by the student involvement than the university. To reword what I am saying, the quality is a direct reflection of the quality of students rather than the actual educational quality. As any university there are professors who are great, professors who are awful and professors who fall somewhere in between. The involvement of the school in a student's success is amazing, the career center is amazing and the overall experience is amazing.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Overall good university,nice campus, DC is a great place with a lot of opportunities for gov. jobs (international development etc, politics) and federal consulting. People are great (both students and in the surrounding DC area), most of the professors are great as well. Cons: Not much career prospects for international students (federal jobs require clearance),a lot of other strong universities in the area + other Americans come from top schools to work in DC. Outside of gov-t and politics, alumni base is not that strong, business school is ranked somewhere between 50 and 60, career service is targeted on undergrads and MBAs/Eliott School grads. GWU is more like a one dimensional school...Good for International Affairs (Elliot school degrees), maybe Law and Healthcare and thats probably it...

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The GW Business Administration graduate program offers an elite education at an expensive price. The workload provides valuable information and finding that balance between work and school can be difficult but is manageable.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I love my classes at GWU. I think my professors are attentive to the students and are knowledgeable about the subjects. Unfortunately, GWU is very expensive. It is expensive to live in DC and is difficult to work while being a full time student.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program is highly dedicated to ensuring that the student receives the full-benefits and experience of the program. They emphasize self-care, moderation, collaboration, achievement, and community awareness. The students never lack for opportunities of advancement, interaction with and knowledge provided from local experts/authorities on the career of choice.
