How is George Wash Uni for MIS course?
I am unable to find a positive response. There are very Mix reviews about this Uni.

Good god! For such a decent Univ and one of the better MIS programs, this thread is quite dull.

I am planning to apply for this university. My observations -

1] The overall University ranking (National ranking of something 60) sounds decent. Ranking wise it is way ahead of RIT / Georgia State / IIT etc, still not many people talk about this university .

2] Being in the Washington D.C will have location advantage for jobs.

3] Course content is ok. We can finish off the MS in 18 months. Can do a certificate in Business Analytics (if you are interested in Big Data Analytics)

Still I have not heard anyone applying to this Univ ??
Can anyone please throw some light here ?

I guess that many don't apply here because of the high cost involved. Living, apparently, is quite expensive in DC.

On the other hand, a University's popularity on Edulix is to be taken with a pinch (a rather big one) of salt. Lot of good Univ's are not discussed here as much as they should be.

GWU is quite reputed. Way better than most Univ's on Edulix.

I think GWU's MIS is one of the best technical MIS's (one of the highest number of CS-related courses).

If you get latest feedback from any seniors, please post it here for the benefit of all. I will do the same if I come across the same (though I am quite far from applying, Fall 2016).

please, note that 80% of jobs in DC area require clearance or at least a US citizenship/green card...
so finding a decent job is a bloodbath for international students with mediocre English language skills.

harrynepotter: Agreed that GW is a good school and that it's pretty reputed, but the costs and the dearth of jobs for non-US citizens in the NoVA/MD/DC area is why not as many international students go to GW as other schools, and why this school doesn't have as much discussion on this thread. However, that being said, don't let the lack of discussion on this thread stop you from applying to GW or attending it, but keep in mind that job search after your MS in that region will undoubtedly be hard, in the least, even if not a bloodbath as Curumo puts it. Good luck!

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix.

2) Please take some time out to read this and this thread in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.
