Strange Criteria but I guess it is a way to indicate where where young professionals want to be these days. I'm not really surprised by any of the Top 5. All have a very large companies that offer very good pay.

By looking at where the class of 1998 from Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Rice, Northwestern and Duke settled 10 years later, we get a good sense of where the top-notch jobs for young people exist.
Our methodology remained the same this year except for one measure. Instead of disqualifying graduates from Stanford who, 10 years out of school, were in California--or Duke graduates living in North Carolina (broken link) and Harvard grads in Boston, for example--we counted them toward a city's total.
1 San Francisco
2 Minneapolis
3 Houston
4 New York
5 Boston

The City by the Bay outshined the rest of the field in attracting alumni from the nation's top schools. More of the class of 1998 from Harvard, Stanford, Rice, Princeton, Duke and Northwestern picked San Francisco (http://www.forbes.com/afxnewslimited/feeds/afx/2008/06/24/afx5146141.html?partner=lingospot - broken link) as home, 10 years out of school, compared with any other metro.
