George Washington University Graduate Reviews

The office of admissions staff was very helpful with my transition, as well as the GWSPH faculty and staff. They are very interactive and informative. The process of applying and staying in the loop went smoothly because of all their hard work and dedication!

Graduate online student who has been mostly in the business world.
Way overpriced.
Mediocre and disorganized professors.
Support staff (including financial aid) that are average or worse.
Professors have very little interest in whether or not students succeed.
Professors are arrogant.
One gets the sense that the university has become a racket that is mainly focused on revenue and getting more students in the door.
Professors are completely uninterested in receiving feedback.

Overall the old adage seems to apply:
For those who can they do. For those who can't, they teach.
If you are dealing with anyone at GWU, keep careful notes about who told you what and when. They are notorious for giving false information and then claiming that they didn't.

GWU was a waste of my money and time.
Avoid GWU if you are seeking a good education and you desire to spend your money or take out loans for a good reason.
I really enjoy George Washington University and all it has to offer, but I feel my program struggles to be fully recognized by the school. Very little funding is given to the Graduate School of Education and Human Development, as well as opportunities for research. The program has been accelerated, which does not give us time as students to fully develop our skills or get what we need out of the program.
