Born and raised in Philadelphia. Of the schools you named, I would pick Villanova. Donít know much about Dickinson, but I do know their alumni are not strong in Philadelphia. Basically, Penn, Villanova, and Temple students have the best shot in Philly.
Rutgers is a good school and does ok in philly, but I would only chose Rutgers over nova if you are a NJ resident. If you are a PA resident, I would shoot for temple. Itís a better school than nova and a lot cheaper.
Donít pick Drexel, unless they offer you a good scholarship (they offered my one, which I turned down, when I transferred). Drexel is a good school and they are on the rise, but they have no alumni and are relatively unknown.
