I hated my experienceAverageElectrical Engineering
I hated my experience here. I am glad I chose to study engineering. The majority of the faculty I have found to be unhelpful and uncaring. I would not go here if I had a second chance I would go elsewhere.

Don't waste your time in this University.Quite BrightElectrical Engineering
Don't waste your time in this University. The reputation is fake. It is a scam. The school will squeeze you for every dollar and attach annoying fees here and there. The student body lacks integrity and honesty. Majority consisting utter mess of blabbering idiots with parents who don't know where to send their kids with their money. No wonder very minimal number of alumni donate to this joke of a institution.

Financially, I think it would have helped ifBrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Financially, I think it would have helped if I had come from a wealthier background. Not because the school is expensive (financial aid is actually really good), but because I think I could have related to other students more.

Socially, frats are pretty big. A lot of people party there even if they aren't in them. Clubbing is pretty popular, too. I was definitely disappointed at how big drinking was in campus and how few people new how to have a good time with out alcohol.

Academically, I found most of my classes to be really great. The professors I had we really awesome for the most part and very smart. They were willing to help if you were willing to ask. I've since transfered, but I think I would have liked GW more if I was a partier with a lot of money. If that's you, go for it.
