5.0 of 5 stars
Countless opportunities available to work on the hill and work in government while in school. All star caliber professors. Clinical programs are top notch.
Class sizes are too large. If someone isn't outgoing, it is easy to get lost in the shuffle. Administrative bureaucracy can be a pain at times..
When comparing Georgetown with similarly situated schools, consider its location in DC, the opportunities available on and off campus, and the professors that you're able to learn from.

the courses are definitely pros for choosing GULC. With the good location of the school, a lot of teachers are adjunct professors from various government agencies, ie., SEC, CFTC. This maximizes the depth of the class and experience a student may get.
the career advisor is definitely a downside in GULC. They only give a general idea and pays little attention to individual student.
This is a good school especially when you are seeking to be working in government agencies. And you have to work hard in a greater amount of students and in a little market.
The adjunct professors (majority of LLM faculty) are subject matter experts in the areas they're instructing. DC is the epicenter for federal tax, and it's no surprise you will get access to the best and brightest minds.
Most courses are at night, presumably to accommodate the adjunct faculty.
I have friends that attended NYU, and based on what I've heard from them, I would choose Georgetown again.
Unbelievable access to DC's practical learning resources. Clinical programs that provide up front experience to develop students before they begin practicing. Elite law school with multiple specialty areas.
Too many students. Because of the need for student volume, compromising on admissions including lower LSAT scores since 2010.
If you want to have a wide range of clinical and practical learning opportunities, there is no better school. Around 40% get large law firm jobs and 25% get prestigious public sector jobs.

several kinds of subjects available for students who are interested in learn US laws and legal practices.
Location: why do we need to study next to Union Station in DC.
GTU Law is a huge size law school. If you want to study in a small group, you should choose another place. If you want to study in a big class room with many students with several backgrounds, this is for you.

Location (Washington DC), proximity to courts, internship opportunities and quality of professors
class size, technology needs improvement, student housing, food offered in cafeteria needs improvement
As one of T14 law schools, GULC is a good choice for students who want to pursue a career in law.
2.0 of 5 stars
It is in DC so it is cool like that.
The professors can be awful. They care more about their status than their students.
To all prospective law students, think twice. G U L C is far from a guarantee of a six figure job upon graduation.
Professors are very engaged, talented and eager to assist students.
Career Services Department is a bit lack luster. The GULC network is large and it does not seem that career services is on top of tapping into it.
It is highly recommended that you join a clinic, as they are phenomenal at GULC and will introduce you to great professionals.
Great professors who are passionate about teaching and leaders in their fields.
Class sizes are large making it difficult to meet everyone.
Georgetown is in the heart of DC so taking advantage of the externship or clinic programs is a must.
Wide variety of class offeringsStudents are not competitive with each otherCafeteria is solid
Huge class sizesNot much connection with professorsTerrible area in DC
Be careful if your heart is set on DC biglaw. It is still very difficult to get even out of GULC. NYC (and sometimes secondaries) is significantly easier.
