Hi!!!
I am basically trying to see if I am easy to figure out, if it's obvious to you which city was I made for.

Things I look for:

1) Big..BiG..BIG cities....popular around the world.
2) Amazing skyline! I enjoy that cosmo feel.
3) Great public transit! I'd wanna live in the city without a car.
4) Nightlife: great bar and clubbing scene, maybe the wild scene like that of a college town. Great dating scene.
5) People: Liberal, modern and friendly, easy to small-talk with people whonot only support, but take the extra step towards equality.
6) Setting: Natural beauty be it ocean, lake, mountain what not.
7) Weather: I enjoy four seasons, and year round mild temps equally.

No consideration needed for:
1) Affordability: I am confident I will get paid well with my major of choice.
2) Safety: Depends upon how smart of decisions I make.
3) Job market/economy blah

Any of those cities will work, probably would not go with Portland, Denver, or Seattle. Sounds like you would do best in NYC.

I think Seattle is the city for you. It has 4 seasons, but milder than NYC (not as hot or humid in summer, warmer winters). It is in a stunningly beautiful part of the country, with liberal people, a beautiful skyline, and very walkable (I think they have decent public transit, and they are expanding upon it). The nightlife, from what I've heard, it decent. You can get better nightlife and world recognition in other cities, but I honestly think Seattle is known pretty well worldwide. Whatever you choose, good luck!

Hello and thanks to everyone that responded!
Youse guys got really close, and bulls eye mostly.
NYC: Always know that I was born to belong here. I am not the biggest fan of the saying "When in Rome, do as the Romans do", but instead I love love love the "When in NYC, do it like none other"-self hehe.
Seattle: Never been here, but have always wanted to. Crazy to the extent that I have pin pointed which neighborhood I would wanna live here.
London: Absolutely adored it when I was there, would wanna go back but for a fixed duration. Besides the weather being gloomy, I don't think I belonged there (maybe due to the fact that I am past that age where I can adapt my tongue to a foreign accent). However, being as international as it is, I think maybe fitting in isn't necessary, comments?
Chicago: I was born here, but I have that sort of association with it (I set my first step in America at O'Hare). No matter how many times I see it, can't help but admire the skyline, turquoise waters of the lake and fresh water beaches.

San Francisco wasn't mentioned, and I've never been there, but it is very likely that this Golden Gate city could get my golden ticket.

Alas, I still don't know where I am headed. Majoring in Mechanical Engineering is going to limit my options, but hopefully I can fit into my niche.

Yes, Seattle has a very lively entertainment scene. Their transportation system consists mainly of his and electric trolley, but there is a light rail line that runs from the airport through town and out to the U District currently underway.
It is definitely the 'it' city right now. I was just there last month; the amount of redevelopment there was exciting...construction cranes everywhere. There is a careful balance of new construction and old buildings being rehabilitated.

Most of them are great options. Denver, Portland, and San Diego might be a bit on the smallish side for you.

I thought Philly and NYC. Philly has one great highway that will take you to the shore, just outside of the city.
Its quite a nice highway, and not crowded.
Philly has a wonderful skyline. It also has some great hidden cafes. One cool one is across from the old prison.
Its a redone firehouse. You can eat indoors or out. In the summer the large doors are all open.
Philly is full of interesting points. It also has all the seasons. You can hitch a AM track train out of Philly or a major air flight. A bit more calm and comforting the the hussle of NYC.
