No complaints what so ever! My experience, even during our recent pandemic, has been nothing short of great. The educational services and systems the school offer is great. Moreover, the school also offers child swim lessons which is great for me as I have two kids of my own.

I do not attend Georgetown University until the Fall of 2020 but so far the communications between the Dean and the students has been effective and all the staff that I have come in contact with have been very helpful. I am excited to step foot on campus in the capital of the United States of America! I look forward to interning in some of the most prestigious biochemical laboratories in the world.
They have been so helpful throughout the admissions process. Very responsive to my emails, which is a life-saver as I will be an online student from thousands of miles away!
