Midland for me, which is accurate. Not sure how the Philly accent was its next guess for me though at 87%.

Speaking of accent quizzes, there was one that was put out by a university, and it guessed your accent down to the very city you were from instead of just a regional accent. That was a fun quiz. I'll have to see if I can dig it up.
