GW Paris Scholars Program

d0ug1asd0ug1as 4 replies2 threads New Member
I was denied from GW entirely, but I just received a pretty vague email saying I was being offered the “Paris Scholar Program”.
Basically it is a year at a school in France for a year, and then a guaranteed transfer sophomore year (as long as you maintain a 3.0 GPA, but from what I have read the academics are pretty lax). Has anyone else gotten into this program, and are you considering it? It is my top option excluding 3 wait lists and a deferral.

    I'm currently in Paris for the Paris Scholars Program, only 13 students are in the program as well, so it's a small group, but I do suggest thinking about taking the offer. PM me if you have any questions.

    Hello - Would you mind sharing your thoughts on the program here (I cannot PM). Was it a good experience; do you recommend it? Pros and Cons?

    @smack312 I absolutely loved the program, being in Paris is such an advantage in itself and the trips and experiences I had were absolutely unbelievable. Tbh I'm happy I spent my freshman year in Paris rather than at GWU. I would 100% recommend doing this experience. The only con is if you're not used to traveling or living somewhere not in the United States it's going to be difficult for you. You can go through culture shock and you could also just get depressed and not enjoy your time in Paris. Paris is extremely different than the US; the language, food, settling, and living standards. You just have to be prepared for such a change, but IMO it's completely worth it and you should take this chance to learn and grow in Europe.
