Review George Washington University
I love George Washington University! I have found a strong sense of belonging here by joining the Student Admissions Representatives team, where there are people who are just like me!The professors are awesome too! They are not intimidating at all. Despite their prestiges in their own academic fields, they could be really easy-going and approachable who really try their best to assist their students to succeed.
GW is an amazing school to be at! Everyone at GW is generally knowledgable about politics and international affairs, so you are exposed to a wide variety of political ideologies. It's an incredibly diverse political environment. This environment then attracts political speakers and other opportunities! As a freshman, you can get internships in some of DC's most prestigious workplaces because we are one of the few schools in inner DC! If you aren't interested in politics, all of our social science programs are equally amazing and our business and engineering program is extremely underrated!
I LOVE GW and could not imagine my life had I attended any other university. In my opinion, the grades on this website are not entirely accurate. Firstly, I have NEVER felt unsafe on campus and neither have any of my friends (a C+ for safety is wrong). The food plan is all I could have ever wanted (should be A+ not C-). We have unlimited options and are not confined to one or two dining halls like most schools. As for academics, I have loved a majority of my professors. Many professors truly care about your well-being as a human, not just as a student. Students are incredibly driven at GW. All of my friends and I have held at least 3 or 4+ jobs/internships and students are always looking to pass internships along to other GW students. As a graduating senior, I've also seen how increasingly important it is to employers that students have internship experience. My DC-specific internship experience always definitely set me apart from other candidates. Thankful for an amazing 4 years.
