Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Biggest problem is the cost of being here. Few complaints besides that. A solid education.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

The professors are great, individually, but the culture of the school is ugly and overly focused on the superiority of legal professionals.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, I've enjoyed my time here and the myriad of learning opportunities the school has given me. The only thing that I would change is the financial aid situation, as the cost of tuition is exorbitant and very little aid is given.

Degree: Health Sciences

I'm a second year student and have loved my experience here. The classes are not graded on a curve so everyone is very supportive and not competitive...the faculty is great and I feel like I will be well prepared for the USMLE Step 1 board exam.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

I really wish there was more ethnic diversity and financial aid, but the geographic and income diversity is great. Going to law school in DC was a great choice. There are so many law internships and jobs. Plenty of opportunities to build your resume if grades don't work out the first year.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The location is wonderful, but if you live outside of the city it can be a trek. The professors are incredibly supportive and always prompt in responding. If an individual seeks support from faculty, they will receive it. Overall, this has been a good experience.
