I wasnt under the impression from his post that he did not like Pittsburgh or was deterred from going to Pitt because of his visit.
You are right though- if there is one thing to say about Pittsburgh it is that most everyone who lives here LOVES Pittsburgh... and some cannot even imagine leaving their humble town!
VivaLaMuerte, are you living in Pittsburgh right now? UG? working?
nah, I just grew up in the region, and am returning for law school.
Yeah, the dreariness can take its toll, but I think it would be much more enjoyable to have a job with lots of work when going outside is somewhat painful, rather than a year-round festival of outdoor activities that you can't enjoy. or that's what I believe this afternoon anyway.
I didn't mean for my comments to seem combative, btw. I just know the impression that mahoneit displayed rather well, and I thought I could explain it away a bit.
It's nice to see so much love for pittsburgh. for those of us going to law school there, though, we should shut up: people from top schools will want to live there and steal our jobs!*
*Just kidding. Pittsburgh firms are rather loyal to the locals.
