College graduation helps, at the very least, giveQuite BrightPolitical Science
College graduation helps, at the very least, give one a sense of entitlement, a not altogether unimportant thing in itself. It is difficult to go on to graduate school without getting through college. I should have known enough to get really great grades, so that entering the most prestigious and selective graduate schools would have wanted to give me money. Having gone to school in D.C. is regarded elsewhere as a sign of status. Graduating from big name grad schools is another. One can learn just about as well at lesser touted institutions, but there is a great advantage granted to those who can claim to be from a "top tier" school, an automatic acknowledgement from others that the person who went there must be smart.

GW is not for eveyone, but those who like it love it. I studies international affairs in the Elliott School and had a phenomenal experience and easilyu came upon a job in my field after graduation. There are a lot of people who whine about some things at GW, but the truth is, they are probably just from NY and whine about everything anyways... GW has changed drastically over the last 4 years and its student body has become smarter, friendlier, more competitive, more outstanding, and more dedicated to their studies. ITs no longer the easy university it was rumored to be in the 80s and 90s.

Question

The school is very international which is a plus. I like the fact that everyone is so well traveled which makes for interesting perspectives on things. The school is very political both inside and outside in the DC area. I think is a better choice for those interested in pursuing politics rather than G-town cause it forces you to use the resorces that dc has to offer as a student.
