Is Southwest a good school?

The definition of a "good school" is different for different people. Admissions difficulty and admitted student statistics can give you a sense of how selective a school is, but they don't say much about the quality of the education or the student experience.

Retention, graduation rates, and job placement statistics can help you understand how satisfied students are with their school experience, and how effectively an institution prepares students for careers.

Retention and graduation rates

About 55 percent of students who start at Southwest come back the next year.

Compare this to the average six-year graduation rate for colleges and universities in the U.S., which is around 61 percent for public schools and 67 percent for private.

Job outcomes and student debt

Job placement rates after graduation, average starting salaries, and the debt students graduate with can all give important clues about the value of a degree from a specific school.

Based on this information, how does Southwest sound? Remember, the best school for one person may not be the right school for someone else! So the real question to ask yourself: is Southwest a good school for YOU?
