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.

Degree: Real Estate Management

I am in the School of Continuing Studies. They just moved the school to a beautiful new building in Chinatown. The classrooms are state of the art! All of the classes area taught by industry professionals and they will make the time to ensure that you understand the concepts and relate them to current events/trends

I love Georgetown! It's very competitive with a high level of workload but it's always challenging and exciting. There are the most accomplished professors and classmates I've ever encountered. There is also a large amount of career support.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgetown's online Family Nurse Practitioner Program is incredibly intense. The support from the faculty and staff is superb. The use of technology to support such an online learning environment is creative and conducive to learning.

Degree: Law

This program is academically excellent and comes with a great network. It is, however, extremely expensive and may not be advisable for someone who wants to work in public service.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Georgetown is a great academic setting with a reputation for excellence that is well deserved. The quality of education and career support is extremely high as well as the accessibility to the faculty. There is also an atmosphere of healthy academic competition that pushes students to better themselves, yet always in a collaborative way. Overall, I'm extremely happy about my Georgetown experience! Cons: The cost of living in the areas around campus is very high as is tuition with financial aid traditionally only consisting of loans. More grants and scholarships are a must. The workload is high but no more than any other grad school program.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Georgetown's LL.M in taxation is a nationally recognized program and ranked at #2 in the US by US News. Top four accounting firms as well as law firms recruit directly from Georgetown. Georgetown University Law Center is also located a few steps away from the United States Capitol, the Supreme Court as well as many other famous monuments and historic buildings. Such a convenient location and access to top alumni network in the area all come at a high cost. Apartments and other types of housing in the DC area bears the expense double to what it costs to live in for example Houston or Dallas. For students who are ambitious yet don't have the means to afford such housing must rely on financial aid such as loans or scholarships in order to pull themselves through such discouraging situations.
