For being a real estate company with deep pockets and a large tuition, GW doesn't help me out all that much.

I got accepted in early January and didn't get my official financial aid package until October. It was such a pain in the ass- with them constantly losing my documents (with personal information and SSNs on them) and taking weeks to process things. It always seemed like I would think I had turned in all of the required documents and then more would pop up, thus slowing down the process. However, you can either afford all of GW's tuition or you need a lot of help. I am in the latter category and am fortunate enough to receive $44,000 of aid money- $35,000 of it grants. GW also has guaranteed tuition, meaning that your tuition prices will not go up during your four years here.

The financial process is very bad. While there are many problems, the biggest one is the bureaucracy in the school. There is so much red tape and delay time associated with getting even the simplest things done. In addition, the various departments in the university do not interact, so it is on the student to do all the work running all over campus to communicate between departments. For example, when I signed up for student health insurance, the financial aid office would not allow me to receive aid to pay for it until I purchase the insurance myself and then make the health office send proof that I paid for health insurance. In a smaller school, this kind of thing does not happen.

My experience isn't necessarily relevant to others', but I got my full tuition covered by a combination of athletic and academic merit-based aid. Also had no trouble getting federal loans to cover my housing and living costs.

I was partially coddled at GW by the decision sciences group. They didn't just have us fend for ourselves but sent us scholarship deadline info so we could be sure to meet the deadlines. I do suggest that you take all the scholarship emails to heart and focus on them instead of loans which have to be repaid.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
