I could live in most the 10 metro areas, but would be more partial to Atlanta, DC, DFW, and Houston. If I could get around the cold weather, then I would also put Chicago on the list. I would be least likely to consider NY or Boston.

You really can't go wrong with any of these cities. I live in Atlanta and I will say this, if I had to leave Atlanta, it will be for one of the cities on this poll. No shotgun towns for me. lol, I was in Northwest Alabama over the holiday and 24 hours felt like 48 hours. No disrepect to the smaller towns and communities, but I just can't do it.

I currently live in London and I really like cities like it so I picked NYC. I also would love to live in Chicago.

I'd quite like to live in San Diego when i graduate though!

LA doesn't get too hot during the summer...at least not by the ocean.

I voted Philly because it has a thriving urban core and beautiful architecture as well as a great transportation system and fantastic history. It seems like a great place to live. Plus it is close to a heck of a lot of other big cities.

According to Wikipedia, LA averages low to mid 80s during summer months, which is about 15 degrees hotter than what I find acceptable. November through April look tolerable, but those temperatures should be typical summer temps for me to consider living there. I really, really hate warm weather.

If you live near the ocean in Southern California the hottest it will get in the summer is maybe 85-90 with most days being in the 70's.
