How accessible is the B-School's CSO?
General living tips like "don't go to the corner bakery down the street it's bad"?
1) Very well, generally. Same rules for Pros/Lit apply, but GW has a ton of small prosecution shops recruit here (some that pay market).
2) Its reasonably accessible, but its also not that useful. GW Business is not a target for any high-end MBA position, so don't get your hopes up?
3) Filter coffee(on I between 20 and 19), Founding Farmers (20 and Penn), Washington Deli (On 20 between K and I), and Rice Bowl (on 19th between K and L) are by far my favorite food/coffee places w/in a short walk. If you're looking for somewhere to live and not spend a ton, Silver Spring is acceptable, and dirt cheap compared to other GW accessible areas.
I agree - you'll do pretty well since you had good enough grades to transfer. Anecdata - I was an EE transfer to GW and preselected every bid accept for Cooley.
I would actually vote Alexandria (van dorn area) over Silver Spring. Closer to campus, you can find some decently-priced apartments (some that even have capped utilities) and Old Town is a nice place to walk around.
Sweet. Thanks for the response guys.
In Re: BSchool CSO. yeah I kind of guessed that since the business school isn't too strong there. Still, anything would be better than nothing since our affiliated school doesn't have a business school at all. I'm just looking into alternative career options as well.
