Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2014

The School of Foreign Services is probably the best in the country, primarily for the faculty staff and the professional networks that the SFS opens for graduate students. It constanly offers events and speakers series of a high added value. Another important "pro" is the student body, carefully selected. Students learn from each other. The main "con" is the prohibitive cost of tuition.

Graduation Year: 2015

Heavy workload and tough curve, but most professors are extremely engaging in class and accessible outside of class.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel as though I am getting a complete and nuanced legal education. The only con would be the level of work--it is an overwhelming commitment.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

There are the occasional professors that are brilliant and fantastic and open and accessible, and the occasional course that is fascinating. But for the price, this school just isn't worth it. The jobs aren't there after graduation anymore. The network is quite narrow, and if you would like to leave DC...well...good luck.

Graduation Year: 2015

I'm in the part time program, and it's the best-rated part-time program in the country. The professors are superb and care about students, and it's in D.C., a 10 minute walk from the Supreme Court and Capitol Building. Pretty great.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

This is a great school with a great tradition, reputation, and experience. It is the cheapest of the top 14 law schools in the country. There are great full time and adjunct professors. I was able to meet great people and get great employment opportunities while in school. On the down side, the surrounding area is pricey to live in. Some adjunct professors can be hit or miss.

Pros: I've enjoyed my educational experience thus far. The professors are very well-qualified and for the most part enthusiastic about teaching, and the school's facilities are top-notch. Georgetown Law has two great libraries, and the campus is very well-maintained. Cons: Neighborhood is okay.

It's competitive, but no one is trying to sabotage you. The career services are fabulous.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

The MSFS program at Georgetown is an excellent education with excellent career services. There are also perfect internship opportunities in DC. The downsides are affordability (Georgetown has a very small endowment so it can't offer a lot of scholarships,) and a high cost of living throughout DC.
