1) If I'm looking for a major that is more or less akin to polysci, should I just do SFS and the Culture and Politics? Isn't there just a normal Government degree offered?

2) How important are recommendations/the interview? Can it make or break you?

3) How important are the SAT II's in the process?

    Is it a much bigger difference, Loyola from Georgetown? What I mean is, is the work that much harder at Georgetown than it is at Loyola? Everyone says that Georgetown is very hard, but is it really hard or do people just say that? I just want to know because I am a student at Loyola and I have had thoughts about transferring to Georgetown because it has been a dream of mine ever since the 8th grade. I applied early action to GTOWN in the fall of 2009, got deferred and then rejected in April of 2010. I got into Loyola early action and that's where I am now. So please, if you guys can answer this please do because I really want to know if I will be overwhelmed at Georgetown. Thanks for your time guys!

    for the first question, there's government and political economy in the college. i would say that if you aren't absolutely set on something "international", government in the college is the best bet.

    Can't speak for Loyola MD, but the course work can be very rigorous at Georgetown... with that said, a good student is a good student anywhere... what can be overwhelming is other aspects of transferring from one school to another (i.e. social) along with academics...

    Does anyone know - if we indicate SFS as our first choice on the first part of the application, are we still considered for the other colleges if not selected for SFS?

    1. Unless a person acts like a real a-hole or doesn't show up, I don't think the alumni interview will break you. Most are designed to find out if you are pleasant enough person to be welcome onto the campus, and to allow the alums to do a little bit of marketing to applicants about why Georgetown is great. Most are very informal.

    2. The data I've seen shows that the admissions numbers don't vary much from college to college within Georgetown. Apply to whichever one is closest to your interests.
