Review of Southwestern University

My review

The Good:

Southwestern's small size and emphasis on academics and using what you learn to better the world make it ideal for students who are looking for personalized instruction bent toward changing the world.

The Bad:

Southwestern's campus is very small, which in some ways is a positive (you get to know the other students well, easy to get across campus, run into professors outside of class, etc.), but in others is lacking, especially when compared to bigger schools. However, the city of Georgetown is very welcoming and accommodating to students so, if you are able to get off-campus there is a lot to do and Austin is only 20 miles away.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I believe I got one of the best educations offered to college-aged students at Southwestern. I have continued on to graduate school and not only did I have the experience necessary to get into all the graduate schools I applied to, I also had the knowledge necessary to succeed once I got to graduate school.
