I think I knew GMU because of its presence in patent law and its easy mental association with the other "Georges".

I wasn't really that familiar with American until my last couple of years in high school.  And to be honest, at that point I would have chosen GW over AU any day.  Now I'm happy that I went there for UG though I chose not to apply there for LS (I just wanted to look at a different geographical area--GMU was the only DC area school I applied to and I got rejected there so I think I've effectively accomplished my goal of going somewhere else).

See what I mean about AU's undergrad reputation.  It makes me so mad, because I received an absolutely first rate education there.   GW and Georgetown just refuse to make any room for another school to become as well-regarded as they are.  GRRRR.

I agree with you AU's education is excellent. Especially the School of International Studies... When did you graduate from AU?

I graduated in December 2003 from the School of Public Affairs with a BA in Justice.  Last year AU's SPA was ranked in the top 10 in the country for their graduate programs.  The school just does not get enough press.

You're right it doesn't. I graduated in Dec 01' from SIS with a BA in International Relations...

Because they've done a subpar job of actively manipulating the completely arbitrary ranking system.
