What has been the best part of your experience thus far?: I chose Georgetown McDonough because it was the right "fit." Great rankings aside, it was the students, and faculty that I met on my visits that lead me to McDonough. There is no such thing as a "normal" or "traditional" story at Georgetown McDonough. Every student has a story to tell and hearing those stories has been both the most enjoyable and best learning experience thus far. There is also a sincerity at McDonough in both the students and school that starts from the top and filters down to the students. It's great to be a part of a dynamic school environment.
