Pros: Fantastic professors, who are extremely responsive to the students for career advice, research opportunities, and networking. Cons: The core courses could be greatly improved. Also, scholarship and funding is very difficult to find.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2015

The Georgetown PR/CC program is a phenomenal program that provides practical application in the classroom, giving students a boost in their careers and the skills to go above and beyond in the industry of public relations and corporate communication.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgetown University carries a lot of respectability in the name alone. The medicine program is a strong one, with most students matching into their top three choices in residencies that are very renowned. The curriculum is structured very well, besides being rather lecture based, but the the professors are mostly excellent. They do a great job in teaching clinical skills and letting students gain a lot of patient contact exposure. Living in DC is a major bonus, and although the Georgetown area is slightly lacking in transportation, it is fairly easy to explore such a vibrant city.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I will be starting the online FNP program at the end of June. I have found the amount of support that Georgetown University provides it students amazing. The online classes are interactive and provide a true classroom atmosphere.Being able to participate in online classes allows me to work with my current schedule, continue living in my current home and not uproot my family. As much support at Georgetown University provides, the cost of tuition is very expensive. Due to the cost of tuition, it requires me to continue working full-time in order to afford living expenses and tuition and fees.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a very prestigious school and program. The professors really care about the students and they are very knowledgable. However, the program itself is extremely expensive, and they aren't the best about financial aid. They do secure federal loans based on FAFSA but it's difficult to determine how to secure fellowships or research positions. BEST ADVICE: Contact professors before arriving.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

I have not yet begun the 11-month program, which starts August 2013, but I am very excited for it... the Complementary and Alternative Medicine MS program is very unique in that it works closely with professors teaching in the College of Medicine as well. As a hopeful future physician, this gives me a chance to work and learn from with those who are working to integrate such alternative modalities into modern medical practices.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgetown Law is separate from the main campus, which gives it a unique feel and better location for jobs/cultural events but it is right next to the homeless shelter and in the middle of the city, so it is a little less safe as well. The education can't be beat though; professors and peers are all brilliants, and you learn so much and have so many opportunities. The career advising and networking opportunities are amazing as well. Definitely a fabulous choice for law school.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my program include the fact that it will open up many future opportunities for me in the field of linguistics, as well as affording me the opportunity to expand my knowledge of this field in meaningful and significant ways. The pros are that many assistantships and scholarships are offered only to students enrolled in the doctorate program. Thus, the price for Masters' students is staggering. With some additional financial support, my endeavor to advance my learning will be facilitated to that I may be able to one day contribute to the growing field of linguistics.
