RE: George Washington University -MIS

...I have received an Admit from GWU...I have other admits from UC and GSU...Still waiting for 4 more universities.

I could see from your InfoBank that you choose GWU against RPI. Could you please explain your rationale behind choosing GWU...

Also, I could see that you have around 7 years of workEx.I also will be having 5 years of full-time and 1-year internship exp by Fall-2013. So, very curious in knowing your choice for GWU...

It would be great if you could throw some light on Internship/Full-time Jobs/ Scholarships/ On-campus job, etc..

Thank You in advance!

Hi , ,

As per your infobank, I found that you have applied to GWU MSIT program. Did you receive any communication from university about Admit/Reject?

I have received an Admit from GWU. But, very less information is available on this thread about GWU. Could you please share the information you have about program/Job/Internship, etc?

I have applied on 22/12/12. By reading this thread , I think it is a good college. But There's a lil controversy about it recently in US news.

As per the data I collected from this forum and other sources, getting a job in DC area is difficult since most of companies located in and around DC area are govt comp which hires only US nationals.

GWU is at the heart of DC hence living is very costly. Although this is not the reason to get dissuade.

I suggest you to do detailed analysis by collecting data from people studying at GWU.

Thanks for your feedback. I also learnt that many companies prefer US citizens and cost of living being on higher side..

However, in 2008-09 MIS forum, few seniors said that there are many other companies who sponsor H1B for international students.I do now know how valid this information now?

Also, neither of seniors from GWU seems to be active on edulix...Do you have any contacts with current students?

GWU has lost its rank in US news. For 2013 ,GWU has gone from top 50 to unranked in US news. Will that affect the college reputation and placement scenario?

RE: George Washington University -MIS

I too don't have any contact. I tried contacting on FB but none replied.

What all i can say is, don't go solely on the basis of US News ranking as they r based on number of factors. At least for MIS/MSIS, I can assure you that US News ranking is immaterial. For ex: University of Arizona, UIC, SUNY B are among good schools for this program, however, all are ranked 100+ in US News. So don't go by ranking.

Try to collect data on post MS jobs for MIS or at least for CS, job fairs, faculty, reputation is near by area etc etc.

Sorry for late reply...

I dont really like GWU and MSIST program here...
All the recruitment and events are targeted to MBA and undergrad students...I cant event print an official GWU business card ))) this is funny...
+ DC is very expensive and full of federal jobs ,which means its a no-no to international students...
I would recommend you chosing another university...
GSU sounds fine to me...Atlanta is a great city as well and this uni is good in the field.
