Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is ranked # 4, according to Newsweek and World Report. The faculty will do whatever they can to make sure the student succeeds. As a student I will be prepared to practice medicine when I graduate. The area is fantastic. There is so much to do and see. My family will not get bored, while I am in school. A con of this and any other PA program is that I will have limited time to explore the area and spend the desired amount of time with my family. Also, I will have to commute via metro into the city due to the high cost of living. On the other hand, the metro is a very convenient source of transportation to that I don't have to fight the city traffic and pay for parking in the city. I know that even though I have less time for my family now it will definitely pay off in the future and I will eventually have much more time in the future.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

The requirements of the financial aid offered by the graduate school of education makes the program workload very high, but ultimately, the quality of the instructors and the varied backgrounds and experiences of the other students make this program highly applicable and interesting.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

The George Washington University graduate program in Art Therapy is an amazing program. The faculty is supportive and extremely knowledgeable about the still budding field of Art Therapy. There is a vast amount of information to learn and the professors provide great resources as well as help for the students to find internships. The only con I can think of about my graduate program is the cost. While going to school, I do not have time to work part-time to make extra money to help pay off my loans. I am dedicated to my studies and I know I am getting the best education at The George Washington University, despite the expenses.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program in art therapy has been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done. It's extremely challenging and at time emotionally/ mentally draining, but I've learned so much about the field and about myself as a future art therapist. This program has changed my life for the better.
