If you want to work for the government and can not get into Georgetown or George Washington then i recommend mason. The amount of connections and career services they have here is amazing. If you go to Mason you will get a job.


This school is a commuter school. Do the math 5,000 students live on campus out of 32,000. Yes Mason has the highest oncampus population but when everyone leaves on the weekend there is really only like 2000 and that is because of the international students having nowhere to go. Most people actually know each other before coming here so it can be hard to fit in if you do did not graduate High School in NOVA.

To put it bluntly it is a niche school and if you do not fit the niche you will have a terrible time here.
