I'm coming down to DC in the spring as a part of that famed junior year spring break college tour rendezvous, and GW is the last stop! I cant wait to come visit because I've been reading about GW and doing research and getting excited about it for nearly a year.
But I'm wondering some things, before I come..
1) Is it true that GW has a city school type of layout (i.e. buildings interspersed throughout the regular city like NYU as opposed to a "gated" campus placed inside a city such as Columbia, or Yale)
2) If that ^ is true what does GW do, if anything, to create a sense of community?
3) What, in your humble (or not so..;)) opinion is the BEST thing about GW
4) Do a high concentration of GW students focus on political academic concentrations to the point where students attending who AREN'T studying these things feel out of place? For example, I've been thinking about neuroscience and psych related studies..how would that sort of student fare in the GW environment?
5) Does anyone have any personal experience with the Jewish life on campus? Good, bad, in between?
6) What sort of scores (in addition to good essays, recs, etc) does admissions gravitate towards? So basically, purely numbers wise, where does GW land?
Anything else anyone would like to chip in about would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
