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.

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

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

I love George Washington University. However, the program and the area of Washington, D.C. is very expensive. The connections I am making at GWU are surreal. I know that pursuing graduate school was worth it but the cost is daunting.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Great program and professors, however not enough face time with the professors, often times they are more concerned with their research, however when they are engaging with you, they are present. The cost to attend the program is high and there are not enough scholarships to go around. Many students receive nothing, while a few full rides went out. It would be better if all students who apply in time could all receive a scholarship, rather than nothing. Great city, you are connected to some of the largest cities in terms of international education. Many opportunities for internships or full-time work in the field due to night courses.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

GWU is a very expensive school, with little financial aid available. Washington, DC is also an expensive place to live, making cost-of-living considerations necessary. However, there are always exciting events going on both in DC and on campus. Graduate students can make the most of their experience if they are willing.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel some of the greatest strengths of GWU are its commitment to an educated student base and flexible professors. Many of the professors can meet day or night and are quick to respond via email. In group projects, my fellow students are intelligent, open to new ideas, and able to come up with incredible creative solutions. So far, my only con is the price, which tends to be one of the highest in the area. Though admissions is fantastic and will work with you in order to ensure you can afford GWU's amazing programs.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2017

I absolutely love the MPH in Health Policy at GWU. The faculty is amazing and so is the curriculum. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the program!

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

It really refines your professional abilities and makes you ready for a career much more than undergrad did. I think since it is not a research based program the students are a bit out of touch with the program and it is more like going to class and having an internship than really being too involved on campus.
