Southwestern Question...

<p>I have heard nothing but terrible things about the area of Texas Southwestern is located in. Would anyone like to shed some light on that?</p>

<p>Also, if Southwestern is "the best school you've never heard of," then why haven't very many people heard of it?</p>

<p>Southwestern is located in Georgetown, Texas, which is about 25 miles north of Austin. I don't know what "terrible things" you have heard; this is a great area of the state. Georgetown has grown a lot in the last few years; lots more shopping, restaurants, etc. and Austin is just down the road.</p>

<p>Not sure where the "best school you've never heard of" comes from, but Southwestern is one of the Colleges That Change Lives, from Loren Pope's book.</p>

<p>Did you have some specific questions other than these snarky ones?</p>

<p>No, and I didn't imply these snarkily.</p>
