Reviews for George Washington University, Washington DC
GW is a school with many layers. It is pretty diverse so you can find people with similar interests as you, but you have to really look! Overall education is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for! DC is a wonderful city. There are tons of free things to do such as museums and parks. There are also many great restaurants of varying cuisines. Nightlife is pretty good. It would be nice if the bars stayed open later but that would be my only complaint. DC is a mini NYC and GW is in the heart of it all.
Classes were fairly challenging but there are definitely easy classes you can take to help boost your GPA. If you have done a lot of reading and papers in high school and are generally on top of your homework then you will find GW to be a breeze. Like I said, it is challenging but if you keep up with your work then you will be fine. Most classes are around 30ish people unless it's a large lecture. Large lectures can have 100+ students (into to chem, intro to psych, etc.)
There are tons of cliques, but that happens everywhere. If you enjoy being involved with the school then there are tons of clubs, committees, and boards to be on. I literally think there may be some type of group for EVERYTHING. I personally wasn't into school involvement so I don't know too much about student orgs or activities. I was on GW cross country and I loved it. My team was great. There is also a nice bond between all student athletes. We are kind of the outcasts of the school, which is the opposite of what you would find at other schools. Athletics aren't that big here. Basketball gets a decent fan base but we have no football and I think that's why we are sort of low on school spirit in the athletic sense
