GW just wasn't the right school for me

Apr 02 2004English
GW just wasn't the right school for me. I have never been surrounded by the type of students who attend GW. They cared more about their prada bags and designer clothes than current politics. Ugh I was disgusted. Also the social scene is weak, all I did was smoke lots of weed. Sorry to say I wasted so much time here. I am transfering.

Honestly, don't go to George Washington just because

Mar 16 2004Anthropology
Honestly, don't go to George Washington just because the shiny pretty pamphlets and cherry blossoms when you tour in the spring draw you in. Once you get there you'll notice everyone is completely unfriendly and self-absorbed. The kids I go to class with care more about their clothes than their education. It's sad how apathetic and arrogant the kids at GW are. I really expected more from this school, but unfortunately, I'm probably transferring.

Everyone here is into themselves and their own

Apr 25 2004Political Science
Everyone here is into themselves and their own thing - not an atmosphere where you can learn from each other. Seems like the school cuts corners in a lot of ways - quality of profs, services, responsiveness of administration. They say a big selling point is the internship program - but so what - you are donating your time for free. There are a lot more prestigous schools that can give you a high quality education and make you feel like the money is well spent. Washington is the big attraction here, but if you don't like where you are, what is the point?
