What is your favorite thing about working at Georgetown SCS? Working with prospective students is what I enjoy most in my position. I'm always curious finding out about their background and interests, and helping them to determine if the program is a good fit for them.

What advice would you give prospective students? Don't wait to request recommendation letters or transcripts. These documents inevitably hold up applications and you can avoid this by ordering them early.

What is your favorite thing about working at Georgetown SCS? I love working with so many talented students, faculty and staff from all over the nation and the world. What’s great about SCS is that there isn't a “typical SCS student.” Our programs attract students from diverse backgrounds with some remarkable personal/professional experiences. You never know who you’ll meet at Georgetown Downtown!

What advice would you give prospective students? Apply early! Every term there are a few applications we can’t review because students are still waiting on official transcripts or letters of recommendation. Don’t miss out on a semester because you waited until the last minute to request a document.
