    I would rate The George Washington University a six overall. The university is strong academically, and has great professors, and curriculums. The one negative I would list for it is that DC is expensive to live in, and the city is slightly boring.

    The George Washington University is a great university with a lot of resources at your fingertips. I am still discovering new things about this school and what it has to offer. Its location in the center of DC makes it a great place to meet people and network to find a future job or even just to meet cool people.

    To learn in the nations capital with some of the smartest young minds from around the world is a truly amazing experience. You're going to find your best friends, your favorite teachers, and maybe even your husband or wife here. Don't let the time pass by without you realizing it; take it slow and enjoy every minute because this is your life.

    An academically rigorous college full of rich Jewish kids from New Jersey and New York. Financial aid is not very generous for low income students. Requires 3 year residential policy.

    GWU is not a school for everyone. If you are looking for an idyllic, rolling hills and grassy quad type college experience, this school is not for you. However, if you are interested in being around ample internship and growth opportunities and are a highly independent person, you will fit right in at GWU.
