I want to major in economics, and and wondering which would school would you prefer if you were majoring in economics.
George Washington University or Indiana University?

Indiana, GWU is not a really good school in my opinion, they just capitalize on their location

Business and economics are among the better areas at GWU, but I would still give the edge to Indiana.

GWU is a billion times better than Indiana! Not just because of the location, but because of great academics. It is really hard to get into also. It has a 39% acceptance rate. Indiana U. is not that great of a school either. It's not a bad school, just a normal state school.

For business, Indiana is much higher rated. Top 10 in the country I believe.

George Washington has stronger ECONOMICS program, however.
My recommendation would be Indidana for business, GWU for economics. Two completely different things.

I personally like Indiana much better. Neither is good in Economics. In fact, I would say that they are both average in Economics. However, Indiana is a much better place to get a degree. The campus is much nicer than GWs and school spirit is much better on Indiana's campus. GW has no campus and no campus life. DC is a great city though...but Bloomington is a nice little city too.

You know, Alexandre, on this one I tend to agree with you. Indiana is just a much nicer academic atmosphere overall in my opinion as well. We're probably splitting hairs in trying to discuss which econ. program is better --- GWU offers the advantages of internship possibilities at places like the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Fed. Reserve, FDIC, etc. --- but Indiana offers a stronger business program to take classes in, a plus if you're not sure you want a "straight" economics focus. Neither is particularly "known" for economics but niether is particularly "weak" for economics either. Probably a toss-up.
So, really, it's probably a matter of deciding on overall school fit and not worrying too much about the minute differences between the specific departments. What do you think?
