Overrated: Charlotte - just as sprawling as Atlanta without the culture and amenities. Bad traffic. Overpriced.

Underrated: Louisville - awesome architecture, great restaurants and bars, funky vibe, cheap.

Underrated: RTP - Great climate, great schools, nice quiet area and isn't sprawling too much just yet. Get QOL for the location you have.

Overrated: None. Most people rate the Southern metros pretty low to begin with. I think they're all pretty good

Nobody in the midwest considers Louisville part of the midwest. Rightly so. But it's definitely a very underrated place.

Overrated- Dallas; I just don't get it.

Underrated- on City Data, Charlotte isn't given the credit it deserves. It's a bandwagon city a lot of posters love to hate, but are obsessed with.

I almost took the rest of your post seriously until I realized you're from Baltimore.

Charlotte does not deserve much credit. I think they are overrated.
