I transferred out of here after one andQuite BrightPsychology
I transferred out of here after one and a half years here. (and got a much better education for far less money!) It was dreadful. The professors were totally full of themselves, and thought they were the greatest. The administration was too busy wooing new students and parents that they didn't have the resources to take care of current students. It was way too expensive as well. Just is not worth the time or money. I had really wanted to go here at first, too.

Do not DO NOT come here unless you are a huge partyer and plan on PARTYING EVERY NIGHT. if you are straight edge and dont plan on partying in college DO NOT COME HERE. IT WILL BE HELL AND YOU WILL SPEND EVERY NIGHT CRYING IN YOUR BED. they advertise the vern as being the quieter campus but i live on the vern and it's the same partying deal that foggy bottom is. DO NOT COME HERE.

I received a good education, but I had to fight for it at GWU. The school is an okay city school if you or your parents can drop the $35k - $40k or more per year, but I would absolutely not recommend getting financial aid to go to GWU. It just won't pay off in the long run. This is a school that is very impressed with its own reputation. Too bad no one else is!
