The Bull on George Washington University

Location: Washington, DC (225 miles from Montclair)
# of Undergrads Attending: 10,184
Percent Accepted: 33%
Most Popular Majors: Business Administration/Management, International Relations and Affairs, Liberal Arts and Sciences/Liberal Studies

What I Liked:

  • the extremely urban feel of the campus and its proximity to historical landmarks like the White House
  • the political activism of many of the current students
  • Washington DC’s political significance

What I Didn’t Like:

  • the high cost of attending (tuition, room and board, etc)
  • the constant comparisons heard on the campus tour between George Washington and Georgetown – it seems like some consider George Washington to be second rate to Georgetown
  • How the university’s two campuses divide the school in half. The campuses are not within walking distance of each other making shuttle buses the easiest way to travel.

Seems like a great college for… city lovers and politically oriented individuals
Something unexpected was… that 91% of undergraduates receive at least one internship
during their enrollment at Georgetown.
