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.
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.
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.
