Major: Accounting (This Major's Salary over time)
This is a great university, I wanted to go to UVA, JMU or VT as well, which are also great universities, but I found that GMU had multiple internship opportunities with big four accounting firms and great job/career opportunities. I did the first 3 years with no work experience and built a good gpa, then during my accounting and finance classes I did internships at the big 4 firms in tysons corner and in dc. There is also some in md if you want to commute up there. But I think that doing the internships while in school helped BIG in the long run. The job market it tough right now, but GMU really saved me here. The university has changed dramatically, and gets better year after year. So you are getting a discount by going here now before the place explodes in tuition like older universities do.

Went to all the basketball games and loved it. Went with many friends to the games and developed new friends on campus. Lots of fun things to do around fairfax and its really safe. Parking has improved dramatically and the buildings and campus is looking nicer and nicer. Especially the new tech building and the RAC work out facility.

The recommend GMU, especially if you want a good job and salary when your done.
