I had to average the school and the administration...
The School: The professors are fantastic, and very tied into Washington politics, a plus for any Poli Sci major. The students, though you are bound to find a few bad seeds, are generally engaging and well involved in the workings of the city- from internships on the Hill, to waiters at local eateries. The dorms are great (but over priced), the off-campus accomadations are also fantastic
The admin.: Here it is you will occasionally find a good seed. One story suggests the Unviersity President said, "GW is a business with a mix of real estate, athletics, theater and publications with some academics mixed in".... and you better believe that all the red tape and the price of the university makes you believe it.
I love the school and the people, but the school's adminsitration can drive someone crazy
