Georgetown University, founded in 1789, is the oldest Catholic university in the US. Rated as having a “most selective” admissions process, this school ranks #20 in National Universities according to U.S. News & World Report. International Relations & National Security Studies and Political Science & Government are the two most popular majors at this university located in Washington, D.C.
Georgetown is the definition of a melting pot because it brings students from all over the world to one place; to build long lasting friendships while striving to make their aspirations a reality. Everyone is accepting, friendly, and willing to help you out; both in faculty and fellow students. The academic portion of the university is challenging but at the end of the day it is one of the most rewarding experiences that I have ever had.

Georgetown is a pre-professional University with a very diverse student body. Georgetown has a strong international reputation and many students travel abroad, study abroad, or work abroad during their four years. Georgetown is unique because it has a large, gated campus within a major city.
