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.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of receiving an online nursing education from Georgetown University are that it is more convenient to not have to travel to classes to receive an education from a well-renowned university. Faculty are well-prepared, knowledgeable, and leaders in their field. Cons are that it is difficult to make social connections and you don't feel like you are true part of the university since you are not there in person.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Program is committed to helping students find work after graduation, but the area of social sciences that I am studying are misunderstood and therefore require a lot of explanation during networking or job interviews.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

Georgetown Nurse Anesthesia Program is very competitive. The program is taken very seriously and promotes a high standard of learning. The program has a very high attrition rate, 100% certification passing rate, and 100% job placement. The DC area has a high cost of living and the program is fairly expensive; however, you are paying for a highly reputable school and program. GU NAP is one of the only programs that offers a cadaver lab for anatomy and anesthesia lab. The nursing school is integrated with the medical school as needed to promote a high level of education.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

The Georgetown Grad program which I am in, the Masters of Public Policy and Homeland Security, is a great program academically and in terms of all the great things you will learn. The courses really make you think, the professors are great, and the campus is nice. However, the courses are extremely expensive and they do not give very much financial aid, so each semester I find myself only being able to take one class at a time and relying solely on outside scholarships to fund my continuing education.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

I participate in the online FNP program. I love being able to complete most of the assignments on my my own schedule and not having to commute into the city everyday. The technology is very advanced. I rely on the webcam on my computer to complete classes, this makes our online classroom feel very much like a normal live classroom.
