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.
Great location in D.C. The prep is real, and turned me off initially, but it's all about who you surround yourself with. I find that people have a hard time relaxing.

I love Georgetown for the friendly and casual environment. Unlike most top tier Universities Georgetown has a great balance of academic rigor and mellow students. The best of both worlds, it is an ideal school for the 4 best years of your life.
