    I honestly need to know which city is better. (Grad Schools, Cost of living, nightlife, women, etc..)

    I'm going to work for a few years then go to grad school. I was looking at the D.C. area since it's closer to Ivy league grad schools. However, Atlantawouldn't hurt since it's a thriving city, plus they have a few decent grad schools down there.

    Could you all provide info if you have lived in either city and how you liked it?

    I'm going to need some new friends when I move too...[​IMG][​IMG]

    D.C.

    My reasons:

    1) Jobs: There will always be jobs in the DC/MD/VA area because of the Federal Government
    2) Grad schools: like u said...theres alot of them....Georgetown, George Washington, Howard, American, University of MD, John Hopkins, etc
    3) Nite Life: There is something to do every nite of the week if you really wanted to...beautiful women everywhere...dont let that stat scare you ..but let itmotivate you to stay stapped up

    The only thing I prefer in ATL over D.C. is the cost of living.....In the D.C. area...its expensive as #*#.... I know in ATL, things are alot of cheaper interms of owning houses / renting apt's.

    based on your job choices

    my gut feeling says pick the govt job regardless of city

    thats just me though

    don't worry about all that night life stuff, every city has its spots

    both cities have public transportation

    the cost of living is all about budgeting your paycheck, its all relative to your wants [​IMG]

    I love DC, but know nothing about Atlanta.

    DC has something for everyone though, and something is always going on.
