GT offers courses - free and for a charge on the Internet. They also have a strong alumni group, career counseling and often seek internships, foreign travel and other opportunities to get you out of the classrooms and into the real world. Oh, and superb guest speaker and guest lecturer program(s).

Georgetown is all about the internships, especially for government or international politics/economics majors. We're in DC, so we get crazy internship opportunities all year, whereas other schools can really only help you for the summer. Georgetown helps us find internships, if you choose to use the school's resources. The school also connects us to alumni and DC professionals for networking.

Well - back in the day it was very much geared towards careers in Foreign Service - and a strong multi-cultural diverse student body. But with a conservative bent one might expect from a RS school - tempered with a more pragmatic Jesuit perspective.

You'll never be pushed so hard, and love it so much. Everyone is amazing, and everyone is working incredibly hard. It's a self-described work-hard-party-hard culture, and the same people you see at the party on Friday have probably been at the library all day and are running a small international security conference the next day. That said, there definitely is a culture of busyness, and you have to carve out time for reflection (or sleep) in between five classes and three meetings a day. Because at Georgetown, if you're not incredibly busy...what are you even doing?

Meh. It's a nice campus, but it's small and they're having trouble expanding it. The new buildings they've built recently (a student center, the science building, and the business building) are GORGEOUS and are hopefully indicative of how Georgetown plans to build in the future. The quality of your classrooms depends highly on your major, sophomore spring-onwards, because certain departments still usually use the old buildings. That said, whatever - it doesn't stop you from learning. The library is not great, but they're renovating, and it really doesn't stop anyone from studying there. We have one dining hall, which gets busy but is great for hanging out with people in freshman and sophomore year. Few people keep meal plans in junior and senior year, when we have on-campus apartments or off-campus houses.

We have a comparatively huge number of internationally-focused organizations based on the number of students interested in those issues. That said, my perception is biased because I was in most of them. If you're business-oriented, we have an investment fund, a student-run credit union, and a consulting club. If you're interested in social justice issues, Georgetown is the place for you. We have tons of different clubs working on different issues, both within DC and abroad. And if you don't find what you want, start it. Everyone else does.
