Why did you choose Georgetown McDonough?: After I had reached out to a couple of different MBA programs, Georegetown McDonough made it an easy decision. McDonough was the only program that went out of its way to make me feel welcome and that I was already a part of the community. As an Active Duty Servicemember coming off Active Duty, I was apprehensive about what was next for me. When I reached out to McDonough’s admission team to be connected with veterans, they immediately connected me with multiple resources.
