These are my 3 favorite cities in the country. NYC 1st, SF 2nd, Boston 3rd. Of course what field you are graduating in makes a big difference and could shuffle the rankings a bit.

Boston is a great place to be a student.

I agree depending on career-- but depending on career it might not be good to be in any of these places. Look at cost of living and most salaries.

The job market and way of life here are unmatched. It will cost you, though.

Boston has some bright minds too. Consider that all of the people who teach, or do research, at places like Harvard, MIT, Tufts, BU, Northeastern, or the other universities in the region—or work at places like MGH, Dana–Farber, Brigham Womens, or the tech companies on Rt. 128 and in Kendall Square—live in the Boston CSA.
