Georgetown University Graduate Reviews

21 reviews
Georgetown is a prestigious university and when it comes time to enter the workforce, employers are impressed when they see it on a resume. I currently work for a fortune 50 company and I was told that my impressive education is part of the reason I got the job. The campus is beautiful, historic, and quaint. You also have the ability to easily venture out in DC if you want to explore countless bars and concert venues. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Georgetown and am grateful to have it on my resume today. Housing is expensive near campus, but it’s totally worth it to live in Georgetown and experience all the it has to offer. People do have to study hard since the academics are challenging, but after the exams everyone likes let loose.

Georgetown University has access to good resources both due to the funding it receives as well as its location in Washington DC. Georgetown graduate programs are highly career driven with plentiful placement opportunities and a very strong alumni network. Additionally, there is extensive exposure within and beyond the academic program to opportunities that span all areas of study, especially politics.
The School of Foreign Service has provided me with unparalleled academic and professional opportunities I would not have been provided at any other university given its location and prestige. From interning at the White House, Capitol Hill, and a top consulting firm — all while being a full time student — to its rigorous core curriculum, my program time here has been hands down the zenith of my academic career.

While I was accepted into other top universities, Georgetown SFS was a no brainer, and I’m excited to call myself an SFS alum.
