Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2016

I am earning my Master's Degree in Strategic Public Relations through GWU's Graduate School of Political Management. While I am paying for graduate school myself (and it is expensive) this program is worth every penny. The world class professors, career opportunities, and alumni network are only a few reasons to select SPR at George Washington University. I learn as much from my peers as I do professionals and guest lecturers. We won the 2015 PRWeek Award for PR Education Program of the Year, and I am thankful I get to be a part of this legacy.

I really like my medical school program, i just think that it still needs more adjustments to help students succeed during their residency.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The online MPH program at GW is contemporary and provides an incredible platform of opportunity. The online community lacks the social support and networking that coincides with on-campus programs, however the faculty are excellent and the program draws an international cohort of public health professionals. This program offers great courses, at flexible times, which makes it an ideal program for those working full-time while pursuing their degree.

While this is an incredible institution, the steep costs of living as well as educational costs are a big hurdle to tackle.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The online program is fantastic for working professionals or those that cannot relocate or afford to live in Washington, D.C., but still want to pursue the academic rigor of this program. As an online program, it is extremely important that there is adequate access to faculty and support, and the MPH@GW has a great support system for students. Faculty are accessible via phone, email, and video meetings. Student Support is very helpful is fixing any problems and fielding student concerns. The coursework is typical graduate work and requires graduate level effort. However, the program is flexible and allows you to take as many or as few classes as you'd like to fit your personal life. Most teachers are understanding of professional and personal commitments. Some courses are more challenging than others, especially those that require group project work. Given that students come from all over the US and other countries, dealing with time zone differences can be difficult. Overall, it is a great program and I believe I will be a competent public health professional with many career prospects upon graduation.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

George Washington University is a very excellent school. Located in the heart of DC, you learn so much about life and culture in your surroundings, while also receiving a very solid education from George Washington. My biggest complaint is the cost of tuition is unreal, with little financial aid given. Also the cost of living is ridiculous and it is tough to get by and adds to your stress of school.
