D.C. is a great place to be to network and interact with top academics. However, classes are too large and there could be a better feeling of community on campus. The Foggy Bottom neighborhood is probably to blame for that.

Graduate programs at The George Washington University are unmatched - not only is the education comparable to ivy league, the DC network is widely used/beneficial.

I feel as if the graduate program at GWU had potential. I personally feel as though they are striving to do something great, and their course offerings are far superior to what I see from other consortium schools. The cons are ineffective communication from program staff, and a general lack of organization. Their vision also doesn't seem to translate to day to day operations

I appreciate the extensive student and alumni support for career planning and counseling. Most classes I've taken are useful and high quality, and you can't beat the access to DC and all it's attributes.

The faculty in my program truly care about the student as a whole--not just what you can do academically, but how well you can manage your professional and personal life in conjunction with your academics.

The Masters of Science in Exercise Science program at George Washington University is very application based which allows its students to gain hands on experience more realistic to their fields of study and career paths post graduation. The opportunities this school can provide in the city environment are limitless. Because it is located in a largely populated city, networking is exceptionally helping provide further opportunities for its students in a broad spectrum of health related jobs.
