Biggest tip to getting in: Make as many official inquiries into the school as possible. Call them. Many times. Find current students to talk to. Visit--several times if you can. Most importantly, INTERVIEW. Admissions keeps a record of these things and it shows you really care about going to GW. I had a great interview and I found out later that my interviewer really lobbied on my behalf, and that a huge impact on my acceptance into the School of Media & Public Affairs (the most selective school here--not bragging) and the honors program. DO THE INTERVIEW AND BE YOURSELF. It's SO worth it.
