Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2017

There needs to be a better use of technology. I have to use a land line or my cell phone for the audio portion of my class. Sometimes this means excessive phone charges that are not calculated into the expense of the course. Thus this is not a fully online or virtual class.

GWU is a great school because of the city that surrounds it. It offers numerous networking opportunities and ability for career advancement.

The pros include being in a city full of people who want to engage and work hard. The opportunities are endless, as well as the devoted faculty. The cons are the high cost of attendance and cost of living.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

GWU is a fantastic institution and it has a strong presence in Washington, DC. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to be part of an excellent academic environment while also advancing my career with the provided career services and professional network. Although, the cost of attendance of GWU is high, I strongly believe that this one of the best investments for my future.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2007

Great location for the degree, great professors, but they need a full staff and more accessibility for working students, since it is a program designed for professional workers. A tad over priced, but you get access to a lot of people in the field. Take advantage of networking, that's the real pay off. Never felts unsafe on campus, but it is a city and people do get mugged.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

GW has an exemplary online public health graduate program allowing students like myself to fit schooling seamlessly into our hectic lives, no matter where in the world we call home. The professors make time to provide students with assistance whenever possible and serve as an incredible knowledge base from which to learn.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

I just began this program, and I feel that it is excellent in education quality. Lessons, materials, and instructors involved with the program are engaging and challenging. At every available chance, the instructors relate coursework to future practical applications in professional capacities in which we may eventually work with the help of this degree. The workload is considerable, but seems very appropriate for a graduate-level program. I feel as if this degree program is a good value, and the support staff is great. The school's financial aid system is very difficult to navigate, but the staff are willing to work with students to help with account questions and how to fill out the required paperwork.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The school attracts many important people such as Supreme Court justices and attorneys who have argued in front of the Supreme Court. The facilities in the school are not up to date unfortunately and communication between the administration and students is pretty poor. However, I do like the faculty members. Most of them are really supportive and willing to help with any of your needs.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

I have had an overall great experience at GW! I do think that financial aid and supporting scholarship resources are very limited!
