In the Philadelphia area, Villanova has an edge over Pitt due to larger alumni base. Generally, there is no question that Pittsburgh has a more prestigeous law school. If you want to practice in Eastern PA, NJ, or DE, go to Villanova. Anywhere else, go to Pittsburgh.Might I suggest my own Temple University as an alternative The reputation is about the same, the facilities & faculty are top notch, and the tuition is much cheaper, even if you are out of state. We are in the hood, but the campus itself is nice.
Visit each campus before you decide. Pittsburgh used to be a steel town. Food stinks there, and bread molds quickly if you leave it out on the table. Good luck.

Good luck.Depends on what kinda food, but there is nothing that Philly has, save cheesesteaks and pretzels, that you can't in pittsburgh, just as good and cheaper.The steel town comment is pretty unhelpful, too. It is nothing like a steel town these days, and is more of a high-tech/healthcare based economy. It's also a very clean and safe city, insanely cheap to live in, and pretty fun, so long as a booming club scene isn't your thing.But yeah, visit both (and philly). Villanova is in a beautiful area, though I'd prefer Pittsburgh over Philly anyday.
