There are only a few schools that are superregional like this.
BC in the northeast
GW in the mid-atlantic
ND in the midwest
USC/UCLA on the west coast
These schools will be able to open a lot of doors in the larger geographic region associated with them. Their students aren't limited to market they generally feed into.
Agreed. Also seems strange (wrong) to group Vandy with BC/GW/ND. And where's Texas?
