Every year the Office of Graduate Admissions receives thousands of applications from over 100 countries. We review each application in a holistic manner considering academic and professional qualifications along with many other qualitative factors. We understand that there is more to an applicant than just numbers.

We hope you find the answers to all of your questions and the guidance necessary to apply to any of our programs. We’d like to give you a sense of the wonderful opportunities you will have at Georgetown and in Washington D.C. If you need further assistance please feel free to reach out to us.
