I'm headed off to college next fall and looking at these two wonderful places for college. I live in CA right now and have been to San Fran but never to NYC. i want to know which is better for a college student to be living in, if I were living in NYC, I'd be going to college in manhattan and in San Fran, just the general city. i'm looking for a place where you can walk everywhere which is both but I also want a great city with tons of things to do and just a great overall college life there, so which one works?

extremely vague... you need more information as they both fit your requirements so far. I would base it more on the actual schools, where you want to end up working, what you want to do, quality of education... and numerous other factors.

I'll echo the advice to base it on the schools themselves -- that's far more important than specific city. You'll be able to walk everywhere and have plenty of things to do while living in either place.

I prefer New York, but both offer tons of everything you are looking for. Not sure what schools you are looking at, but you should probably pick the city that has the school you like the most.

I was looking at Golden Gate University in San Fran and Berkeley or Hunter CUNY in New York which are right in the city. I was also looking at Burlington, Vermont and Portland, Maine, maybe a small town with a city atmosphere which would be cool. I just like to walk everywhere and prefer not to have a car, i don't mind snowy winters. I'm from LA and love it but it just is too spread out for what I like, you gotta drive everywhere. The only problem I have with San Fran is the weather is always the same where in NYC you get all 4 seasons. which do you think is best?
