Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgetown's MSFS program provides people with international experience to further their interests in foreign affairs. Alumni rave about the accessibility of faculty and how they are willing to open their personal networks to students. It is a very expensive program, however, with limited funding. This is a huge factor, especially for those who want to work in the non-profit or public sector.

The components that make up the program at Georgetown are only minimal when paired with the value that one places upon the education and social experience on their own. Their are some things out of a students control but the collegiate experience at Georgetown is indeed worth everything. Hoya Saxa !

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

This graduate program is very new, and has a few kinks that need to be fixed. The faculty is amazing, and are always willing to assist you with any issues. The school itself is great, but commuting to this campus is a nightmare. Driving to campus everyday is not feasible, unless you can afford to spend the money for parking. The school does try to alleviate some of the transportation issues with free shuttles buses.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgetown University is one of the top graduate schools in the country. They have a excellent and dedicated staff to help you at any time you need it. Georgetown University is also ranked highly for their academic and technological advancements in every subject they offer, including tumor biology. Furthermore, they offer a plethora of financial aid to its students so they can focus on their studies. If you want a well rounded, diverse and dedicated staff, this is the place to go.

The SMP is a strong program in preparing you for medical school. Yet looking back in retrospect, I wish I had attended a program that had a linkage with the medical school.

I am in the School of continuing studies and it lacks major resources for students.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of this program were the connects made, the experience gained from the laboratory requirements, and the diversity of the classes. I easily got into all schools I applied to for my PhD, directly as a result of my experience at Georgetown and the individuals I met there. The professors really make themselves available and are extremely accommodating, to ensure the students have the best experience possible. I learned a lot, and overall, the program itself was worth it. The cons are more about the area than the school itself. Georgetown is not on a metro line, for those individuals who do not live walking distance. While there are buses from the downtown DC to Georgetown, the commute can be taxing at times. Cost of living in Georgetown and in DC in general, is extremely expensive! Prepare to go broke as a student. While the Doctoral students have a stipend, the Masters students do not (which is to be expected), so living in DC can definitely put you in the red. The only other negative thing to say is that the city, literally, shuts down with just an inch of snow, which can be really annoying. That's not Georgetown's fault though. Overall, this is a great school, offering a great education! I highly recommend it!

Degree: Law

Georgetown Law is the best program there is for law school: there is no better preparation for a career in politics than this prestigious law school in Washington, D.C.
