Like we said, the location of George Washington University is probably the best thing about it. The urban campus is located at the wonderfully named Foggy Bottom area of DC, which means you have the world at your disposal. Well not literally, but you get the idea. If you ever plan to get out of the city, all of Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York are not too far away.
The surprising thing here is that although of a lot of money is spent on facilities, the basic infrastructure - lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories - aren't exactly up to the mark. Everything else though, is quite exceptional. They have brilliant facilities for all sports and athletics, a huge library which has everything you could need, and a great, state of the art gym.
Many students at GWU live in the dorms, but many more live off campus. There are a number of places around college where you can find accommodation, though they aren't very cheap. The smartest thing to do would be to find some people to share a house with, and then go looking around for one - preferably slightly away from college, if you don't want to end up spending too much.
Washington's climate isn't too great - summers are quite hot, while winters can get really cold, especially when the chilly winds set in. Basically, you need to be prepared for all kinds of weather. That includes rain; DC receives a fair amount throughout the year, so carry an umbrella.
Now, George Washington University is by no means among the top universities in the States, especially for engineering. Somehow, though, the professors here are quite fantastic - highly qualified and highly experienced. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the reason - DC, if you were still wondering. Professors share a good rapport with students, though sometimes it becomes difficult to get personal attention, simply because of the sizes of the classes.
At a college that charges a frightfully high fee, you'd expect some amount of decency when it comes to scholarships. Apparently not, it seems. Yes, it's possible to get some funding, but it's never easy, unless you have a strong (academic) case for it.
You don't have to be TOO worried about finding a job if you have good academics. You're definitely going to have a harder time looking for a job if you have lower marks. So you should aim to at least maintain good academics. Everything else falls into place automatically, since they have quite a decent Career Centre, which provides high quality guidance and help.
If your aim is a big city rather than a big college, George Washington University is pretty much made for you. Though you could probably aim for some better colleges in New York anyway.
