@ kaur.preeti

I havent heard of anyone with a GA or TA in their 1st semester (but u never know whats on their mind so keep ur fingers crossed). If ur profile is good they might give you a 1 or 2 course waiver. depending on your performance in the first semester GA/TA is decided.

Also check this thread for more info;

I have replied as vadois and varundoi (both are my ids)

Here is a good place to start off getting some information about MIS and answers to other questions that you might have.

This sticky is for questions pertaining to GWU alone.

Cheers
@ Vadois, can you answer the following questions for the benefit of everyone:

What is the class strength and distribution?

What are the courses that are offered? What are the typical courses that a GWU MIS student takes as part of his/her degree plan?

Some info collected from a friend of mine who is studying in GWU.

Internships
Everyone has got an internship.

Aid
Getting an assistantship is very difficult.Only 2 people have got TAs .TA=2500$ stipend per sem and 2 courses waived each sem.

Class strength
Around 30-35.Only 4 Indians in his class.

Oncampus jobs
There are several jobs but more Indians coming nowadays. And oncampus jobs might just cover your rent.Most people get work in the gym. My friend pays a rent of 490$ after sharing for a one bedroom with four people!

Course
Course is not very flexible.You have to do 11 courses out of which 8 are core courses and only 3 electives.

Faculty
Awesome department.Profs are amazing.Atmosphere chilled out.

Fulltime jobs
Everywhere it is bad.

Hi seniors ,

I have got an admit for GWU MS IST fall 2011. Now i have to decide weather to take it up or not. I have checked out the course structure n it offers only 3 electives. 8 are mandatory credits. Most of the courses seems to be technical. I am looking for a more management oriented course. How do u rate the course / reputation / managerial aspect ??

dont pay 300 dollars, wait until you get decisions from all universities you have applied.
