Just checked US News rankings. Penn State (15), Pittsburgh (20), and Rutgers (24) are all in the top 25 for public universitites. Princeton (2), Penn (6), Carnegie (22) are in the top 25 for all universities.

I will take it that both Pennsylvania and NJ are tops in college education!

And according to the THES - QS World University Rankings, Princeton ranks 6th in the world, Penn ranks 14th and Carnegie ranks 20th.

Guys, US News rankings are garbarge. Rutgers trumps any public school in PA. Rutgers is one of the largest and most prestigious research universities in the world. Princeton is Princeton. Nothing in PA can touch them.

Do you really think any of these comments are going to help people thinking of moving here?

Don't care but to claim PA superiority over schooling - at any level - is simply not the case.

It might help some one trying to decide whether to live on the Pennsylvania side or NJ side.

Clearly the general area is tops for education, and that is a plus for the area. Thanks, and hopefully we can agree this spirited discussion is sufficient (and dont need any more) for this thread.

HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA Temple is a better school than Rutgers, and we're not in the first tier on US News (for whatever reason). There is absolutely zero refuting the fact that PSU and Pitt are far superior to Rutgers. Rutgers is the most prestigious severely underfunded school in the nation--fantastic. Yeah, Rutgers is so great, which is why people here (from NJ) don't even consider Rutgers, and would rather pay out of state tuition than go to that dump. You're such a PA hater it's hilarious.
