Philadelphia Is The Best City For New Grads

May 5, 2008

Apartments.com and Careerbuilder.com have named Philadelphia the most affordable city for young college graduates (I’ll add young law school graduates!).

Young graduates appreciate Philadelphia’s livability, comparing it to a smaller New York.  Of course, the cost of living in Philadelphia is a lot less than in New York.  The survey found that the average cost of a 1 bedroom apartment in Philadelphia is $962.00 per month compared to $1,520.00 in New York.  You can read more about the survey results here.

Still, some graduates head to larger cities like New York or Washington, D.C. following graduation.  What is it that makes them leave?
