Hi. I've been accepted as an international relations undergraduate major to both BU's Pardee School of Global Studies and GWU's Elliott School of International Affairs. I'm very confused on which one to attend. I realize that BU is ranked higher overall, but GWU has a higher ranked international relations program. It seems to me that being in DC is a huge advantage for internships and having experienced faculty teaching students. However, BU has a great study abroad program and seems like it would be more rigorous. Lastly, any thoughts on this "grade deflation" that I read about at BU? I would love to hear any suggestions/comments. Thank you!
