Several months ago, I committed to GW after a pretty long application process. Not my first choice by any means, I picked the school as someone dead set on living in DC and getting involved with the political realm.
So yes while closed, I have moved to the Foggy Bottom area on my own anyway to try to get that “living on your own” experience. Allegedly many other students are doing the same and I expected to find some social experience.
Unfortunately I’ve founded myself pretty disappointed. The university has became an embarassment with scandals all over the news. The online support from the university and our classes have been rough. It really seems like they did little to prepare for online. I have also found the urban campus to not be as suitable as I expected and that I am missing a lot of that “traditional experience” people fall in love with (big open greens, quite areas, safety, etc).
What would people recommend to do at this point in time (with COVID and all) to build up a decent transfer application? I’m very unsatisfied with the quality of the school, don’t think I really want to be funneled into a career path like Elliott is trying to do, and am almost certain Leblanc will keep us closed this Spring.
