Firstly, the Professors and advisors are genuinely some of the most unhelpful people I?ve ever met. The professors are top in their fields which seems like a good thing but all this means is that they are professors on the side and don?t actually care about teaching. The advising team is useless and will not help you w course selection, grading issues etc. I know people who went to an advisor and were told to take specific classes but later it was revealed that those classes were not necessary for graduation and as a result those people needed to make up credits. To be frank, the social scene is only fun if you can afford to spend $20 for cover at night clubs and then drinks on top of that. For the most part the student body is wealthy but not the generous, down to earth, old money kind but the self absorbed nouveau riche, having money is a personality trait kind. If you can?t keep up with their spending or afford to go to clubs there?s not much a night life besides frat parties which mostly take place at rented out clubs or off campus apt?s/houses. For the price of tuition this school is not worth it whatsoever as even the dorms are run down and gross. The only positive I can write about is the dining plan but that?s about it.

I regretted that then and did for about 10 years afterwards. However, I also studied at Georgetown and since working with Ivy League people I can tell you that the education quality at GWU was far superior both from what I got in the Engineering (SEAS) and Business schools at the time. I didn't realize this value until ages later but I really feel the quality of education I received was very high even though I was too miserable to notice this at the time.

Basically blew me off since LinkedIn is not a place to network for employment.

Worst investment of time, money and the hope of achieving a good professional career. Avoid this school if you want to have a worthwhile career after graduation.

This is not a college experience, its like a transition from high school to living alone in a city, not college. Students are not nice and only care about going out. If you do not like going out that much, you will have no friends literally. There is no university cafeteria, no student center, no campus, no college spirit. Do not come here unless you are sure of what you're getting into.

This school does not care about its students and there is absolutely no sense of community here. GW is not a true college experience. I feel like by coming here, i've skipped college and gone straight to living on my own, except I am surrounded by snobby kids who act like they're in high school. So, all around it is a rough situation. Maybe this experience wouldn't be as bad if I was able to find normal people that I like spending time with, but a majority of the student population is comprised of rude, materialistic, arrogant kids. And if they didn't originally fall under this category before coming to GW, they most likely have conformed to become like these snotty kids to "Fit in". I am most definitely transferring.
