Georgetown offers a “great selection of very knowledgeable professors, split with a good proportion of those who are experienced in realms outside of academia (such as former government officials) and career academics,” though there are a few superstars who might be “somewhat less than totally collegial.” Professors tend to be “fantastic scholars and teachers” and are “generally available to students,” as well as often being “interested in getting to know you as a person (if you put forth the effort to talk to them and go to office hours).” Though Georgetown has a policy of grade deflation, meaning “A’s are hard to come by,” there are “a ton of interesting courses available,” and TAs are used only for optional discussion sessions and help with grading. The academics “can be challenging or they can be not so much (not that they are ever really easy, just easier);” it all depends on the courses you choose and how much you actually do the work. The school administration is well-meaning and “usually willing to talk and compromise with students,” but the process of planning activities can be full of headaches and bureaucracy, and the administration itself “sometimes is overstretched or has trouble transmitting its message.” Nevertheless, “a motivated student can get done what he or she wants.”
