Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

GULC is a great law school, with awesome faculty, brilliant peers, a huge alumni base, rigorous academics, and fantastic career services staff. It is very expensive, but they have been very generous with my scholarship amount. Even if you do not get much in grant money, the Georgetown name will help you get a job with a salary that allows you to pay off your loans, and Georgetown's loan repayment program is one of the top programs in the country, for people who want to do non-profit or government work. DC is the perfect location for most lawyers, especially those who want to do government or non-profit work, but there are many large firms here too. The immediate area around the Law Center is not great, but it is very up-and-coming, and campus safety is not an issue.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I am completing an online family nurse practitioner program. The program is full of diverse students from all over the country. The courses are very interactive, incorporating webcams and phones to allow students and professors to communicate during class times. The program is genuinely a frontrunner in online schooling.

Georgetown's McCourt School of Public Policy has a great Public Policy program, the classes are challenging and while the tuition is high, you get what you pay for with the network you gain access to and the resources that are provided.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgetown School of Foreign Services provides the best education in international relations available in the United States. Its faculty are the leading experts in their fields, and the location of the campus is in the heart of the US capital. The network opportunities are unparalleled, and a graduate student leaves this university with applicable skills that will certainly improve one's career.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgetown is an amazing university, with great resources, an incredible faculty, and an unbeatable alumni network. However, it is very expensive to attend. Overall, given the quality of education and access to networking and career building opportunities, Georgetown can't be beat.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The Arab Studies program in the School of Foreign Service is a challenging interdisciplinary program with great faculty and staff. The program allows you to develop your own interests by taking courses from a variety of departments at the University, which also gives you ample opportunities to build relationships with other students and professors from different disciplines. Highly recommended.

Graduation Year: 2015

The Master of Science in Foreign Service Program is an extremely challenging interdisciplinary program in international relations. However, the location of the school, its top rate practitioner faculty and its huge alumni network give you unparalleled access to the best and the brightest and there are ample opportunities to develop skills, interests and divergent career paths. Highly recommended.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The quality of the academics and the professors are excellent, but as a graduate student the expensive living and poor transportation system weighs negatively on the university. However, this is not exactly the fault of the program. Local government in Georgetown limits public transportation options and the university does its best to accommodate the students. Furthermore, attending any school in an urban environment is expensive. I just wish Georgetown had a larger endowment to offer more financial aid.
