Congratulations! Is Pitt your top choice? If so, you can use some of that scholarship money to buy a Glock and some body armor. Oakland has really gone downhill in the past decade
Shame on you for scaring people! Really, Oakland isn't the best place in Pittsburgh, but it is a helluva lot nicer than most places in most cities. I would choose oakland over the nicest areas of new orleans, for instance. And you can live in (the ironically named nearby) Shadyside for cheap, too. Nice tree-lined streets, areas with bars and shops, and nice clean 2 br apartments for 550/month.I don't think I'll ever stop defending the burgh.
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh so I'll always consider it my hometown. I used to want to move back there, but in the past few years every time I've gone back to visit the city seems worse and worse. By the way, my parents lived in an apartment in Shadyside until I was 2. I grew up in Beechview.Go Steelers!
Got my acceptance today! My first one!
