It's not just about geographic proximity. It's also about alumni network and placement of graduates. Wash U consistently places a high percentage of its graduates in Chicago, and a large amount of our alumni currently reside there.
Also, GW places a good amount of grads in NYC and some in Philly. If you were to say those cities are "regional" for GW, it definitely wouldn't be the craziest thing anybody's ever said on TLS.
