I have a deposit down at Rutgers; I was asked by Pitt if I was interested about a month ago off the WL, with the understanding that if I was, I was ready to commit a $500 nonrefundable deposit. I declined, because I hadn't gotten the chance to visit Pitt and I am north of Philly so Rutgers is closer.Now I am having second thoughts. Pitt is in a nice area from what I hear, and Rutgers' neighborhood is unimpressive at best. Also, it seems Temple and Nova might have an edge for Philly jobs. Anybody know about Pitt's placement outside of Pittsburgh, or about comparing these two in general? Cost would be the same.
Pitt, it's not in New jersey.But if you do take Rutgers, at least it's Camden and not Newark.

Have you even been to Jersey? Reading this comment makes me think not. Camden is by far the worst place to be in the State. Newark is actually quite nice these days, particularly around the Downtown, where RU-N and SHU-Law campuses are found.FWIW, I would take living in Jersey over PA any day of the week. Luckily I soon won't be living in either state.
