Nice School

2.0 of 5 stars

November 2018 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Library is decent. Student population, at best, it just ok.

Downers

Student body and faculty have something to be desired as their attitude is quite off-putting.

Comments

Potentially look elsewhere. Many quality substitutes for less money in the current marketplace.

Would You Recommend

No

Too big

3.0 of 5 stars

June 2018 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Great adjunct faculty but unfortunately the good full-time faculty always leave fro Harvard.

Downers

The school is too big to build a strong connection after graduation.

Comments

Great employment opportunities in DC and New York but outside those markets you could do better.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Georgetown Tax LLM Program

5.0 of 5 stars

May 2018 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Wide variety of professionals in the programs - with many of the professors being top experts in their field.

Downers

Majority of classes were after 5pm to accomodate working professionals

Comments

Take some time to carefully consider where you live - some areas of DC are still pretty dangerous

Would You Recommend

Yes

GULC Review

5.0 of 5 stars

March 2018 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Fantastic faculty, particular in areas of constitutional and administrative law as well as legal theory.

Downers

Very large university, can be lost in the mix. Clerkship program is a shambles.

Comments

Being in DC really is priceless. Ability to network yourself for internship opportunities.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Large but Diverse Opportunities

4.0 of 5 stars

November 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

The range of classes and clinical programs is fantastic. Also, the professors are top-notch.

Downers

Can be competitive and the first-year classes are very large.

Comments

The law school is excellent overall and the ability to take classes in a variety of subject-matter areas is great. The clinical programs are some of the best in the country. Also, the range of journals affords many students an opportunity to contribute.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Leader in DC

5.0 of 5 stars

July 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Countless opportunities available to work on the hill and work in government while in school. All star caliber professors. Clinical programs are top notch.

Downers

Class sizes are too large. If someone isn't outgoing, it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. Administrative bureaucracy can be a pain at times..

Comments

When comparing Georgetown with similarly situated schools, consider its location in DC, the opportunities available on and off campus, and the professors that you're able to learn from.

Would You Recommend

Yes

brief review of LLM program

4.0 of 5 stars

June 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

the courses are definitely pros for choosing GULC. With the good location of the school, a lot of teachers are adjunct professors from various government agencies, ie., SEC, CFTC. This maximizes the depth of the class and experience a student may get.

Downers

the career advisor is definitely a downside in GULC. They only give a general idea and pays little attention to individual student.

Comments

This is a good school especially when you are seeking to be working in government agencies. And you have to work hard in a greater amount of students and in a little market.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Great Tax LLM Program

5.0 of 5 stars

February 2017 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

The adjunct professors (majority of LLM faculty) are subject matter experts in the areas they're instructing. DC is the epicenter for federal tax, and it's no surprise you will get access to the best and brightest minds.

Downers

Most courses are at night, presumably to accommodate the adjunct faculty.

Comments

I have friends that attended NYU, and based on what I've heard from them, I would choose Georgetown again.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Georgetown Law

5.0 of 5 stars

November 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Unbelievable access to DC's practical learning resources. Clinical programs that provide up front experience to develop students before they begin practicing. Elite law school with multiple specialty areas.

Downers

Too many students. Because of the need for student volume, compromising on admissions including lower LSAT scores since 2010.

Comments

If you want to have a wide range of clinical and practical learning opportunities, there is no better school. Around 40% get large law firm jobs and 25% get prestigious public sector jobs.

Would You Recommend

Yes

good for foreign students

4.0 of 5 stars

January 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

several kinds of subjects available for students who are interested in learn US laws and legal practices.

Downers

Location: why do we need to study next to Union Station in DC.

Comments

GTU Law is a huge size law school. If you want to study in a small group, you should choose another place. If you want to study in a big class room with many students with several backgrounds, this is for you.

Would You Recommend

Yes
