GW is top 3 nationwide in Most Expensive Schools. As a school located within a prime section in the capital of the United States (minutes away from the White House and the monuments), it is almost a no-brainer that the tuition is that high. However, if you can afford to go there (through scholarships, grants, parents paying, or even loans), GW does not disappoint with the various opportunities available to you, as well as the various things you see and who you meet. Students receive a unique educational experience as well as being taught by many respectable professionals in the medical, government (House and Senate members), and public affairs field. The positives seem to outweigh the negative, and you more likely than not, receive bang for the buck.
