GUSoM has fantastic clinical training, a strong history of matching students in competitive residency programs, and an incredibly supportive faculty and alumni network. The costs are high but are worth it if GUSoM's strengths are leveraged by the student.

GPPI is a rigorous program that is very quantitatively focused. Classes are demanding, but you learn a lot. Being in DC offers a lot of opportunities that you wouldn't get in any other city. The Georgetown network is expansive and can help you get highly sought after internships and jobs. The student body is not very diverse, but is generally very accepting.

My particular program is very career oriented, but not all of them are. The faculty is always very accessible for questions and meetings, or for talking about final projects or future goals. The work load is heavy, but there are people who work full- or part-time jobs.

I have experienced a collaborative learning environment. The professors are top rate, and there are excellent recruitment opportunities for students.

Georgetown offers a wide range of courses that appeal to just about any interest- from government, the sciences, performing arts, law and business. Class Work is challenging yet engaging, but the professors really want students to think outside the box and challenge the status quo. In addition, I was pleased to find that a decent number of courses actually have small class sizes which means more personal interaction with instructors.

Georgetown is a generally good place for graduate studies, but mixes some excellent qualities with some difficult ones. DC is a nice city to live in, but Georgetown's housing and public transit options are paltry and expensive for a graduate student stipend. There are many wonderful faculty members, but it is often hard to form direct relationships with them and get them to invest in graduate student work.
