The Princeton Review likes us well enough (but not as much as GWU or AU)
The Princeton Review just released its annual rankings, and Georgetown got some
real nice accolades (registration required):
- Georgetown was named the eighth best college town, up two from last year’s 10th place showing.
- We also moved up two place to number eight on the rankings of politically active student bodies.
- We’re number seven in terms of popularity of study abroad programs, a new ranking for us.
As strong as our showing is, it’s hard not to get a little crosstown envy. George Washington University was ranked first for most politically active students, second for best college town, and eighth for best dorms; American University was crowned second for most politically active students, seventh for best college town and 19th for best career services.
As far as D.C. schools go, it feels an awful lot like we’re playing third-fiddle in the Princeton Review’s eyes…
