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.
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.
Would I come here again? Absolutely. GW has such an incredible location with SO MUCH TO DO. People are really cool here and love to get out. GW is a good mix of cosmopolitan city life and a college education.
