He is biased and that PT thing does look bad to most employers. Although that Georgetown thing looks pretty damn good. For me, if I get into Georgetown PT and George Washington FT, I'm most likely going to George Washington over Georgetown. I would just rather be a regular student and GWU is very comparable to Georgetown and from what I hear in a much better part of town.
what is the evidence of this? not saying I don't believe it, but that's how i always thought it would be and yet i have heard the opposite from attorneys who have worked in hiring, as well as students who have transferred from PT to FT. the former say firms rarely care and are more focused on your academic record (as well as being concerned with what name your diploma has on it), while the latter have told me they've never experienced any set-backs as a result of switching divisions. maybe they don't realize the setbacks, but apparently they're never even asked about having switched.
i love being at GW and think it's a great school. but GULC is a T14; it's a completely different world of employment opportunities. i think this also goes for PT GULC vs. FT GW. it's just one year of PT, and even then the GULC diploma is worth more. also, if i had an opportunity to go to GULC, i certainly wouldn't pass it by because it's in a semi-boring area. foggy bottom really isn't that cool.
speaking of which, crossfire is no longer filmed here (and no longer on the air??)
also, someone mentioned a great indian restaurant around foggy bottom...can you give me the name? i've found good- but not great- indian since i moved here.
