As the oldest Catholic university in the United States and boasting a 16.4% application acceptance rate, prestigious and selective Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. doesn’t mess around. But those talented 17,000 undergrads per year that get in are in for the time of their lives, socially, educationally, and professionally. Georgetown attracts presentations on such topics as “Star Wars as Political Fiction” and “Exploring Careers in Energy,” promotes active student life via more than 200 co-curricular clubs and activities, and helps all feel welcome on-campus via their new Healey Family Student Center. Its reputation for top-notch athletics (the Hoyas; the men’s basketball team has won seven Big East championships) is matched only by the power of the political and diplomatic names it has seen traverse its halls: Supreme Court justice Anton Scalia and former U.S. President Bill Clinton both graduated from Georgetown. If you’re interested in impressing potential employers and securing your future, no matter your field of study, Georgetown is the place to be!
