    LIFE AT GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY !!

    I applied for many colleges but my top priority was Georgetown University so when I was intimated by the school I was on cloud nine. The college ranks 2 in terms of Catholic colleges in America. The school is the best for the Arts program. The professors are well educated and patient enough to tackle our queries. The campus atmosphere is amazing. I applied through the online gateway for admission.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Literature is a subject where there can be many interpretation in a single line. The professors are happy to take all those explanations.
