    Georgetown has solid financial aid considering its very low endowment: I got comparable financial aid offers from Georgetown and Cornell. Your proximity to DC's attractions gives you both entertainment and career opportunities, which are both priceless.

    You are really buying a name by attending Georgetown. This can be a plus when applying to jobs after graduation although it also can intimidate certain employers if you apply below the type of position you are expected to get when graduating from Georgetown.

    You definitely receive your money's worth at this institution. As I previously described, you are surrounded by ambitious and hard working people trying to contribute their own good to better the world around us. Sitting in on a few of their classes, I found myself in a safe space open to speak my mind and my thoughts on certain topics or issues. This university genuinely makes you want to be a better person.

    While I enjoyed my time at Georgetown University, being a student in the College and not the School of Foreign Service or the Business School, I found that I received much less guidance and structure than my peers. For some, this is what they seek: the freedom to create a curriculum unique unto themselves with classes across disciplines and schools. For me, it created a lot of confusion and lack of direction as my academic advisors did not provide the accountability their peers in the other schools did. I would be extra aware of this fact and either choose one of the latter schools, or be extremely adamant with your assigned academic advisors. Then hope for the best.
