-Transit Access - boston (possibly n.y.c. but bostons t has several subway/trolley stops on various campuses (bu-west;bu-east;bc;northeastern;harvard;jfk/umass;davis/tufts;kendall/mit;...)
-Number of colleges and number of students (can include suburban colleges as long as they're in the urban area) - boston
-Activities - boston/n.y.c/philly/d.c./miami/atlanta/chicago/l.a./san-fran/...
-Safety - boston (actually i think n.y.c. is statistically safer than boston but most people perceive n.y.c. as dangerous)
-Economy (are there a lot on internship opportunities?) - bos-wash
-Cost of living - ann arbor, mi
^ my votes above.

Drexel actually runs on quarters. Typically most majors are 5 year programs with 3 co-ops spread between the 5 years years. There is also a 4 yr 1 co-op option for many majors as well.
