Ah, alright. The city is actually very cool... but yeah, we are all a bunch of degenerates. I understand.
Small parts of the city!
Philly definitely is not wannabe Jersey. A "Jersey person" is really from N. Jersey. They live the stereotype. South Jersey is different.
North Jersey makes Philly look like a paradise!
Wtf are you guys talking about? North jersey. Is beautiful. Are there ass holes? Of course, but its an awesome area. Philly? The people here are horrible. I cant wait to move out. No offense philadelphians .

Just for comparison's sake, here are psu's record vs the teams of note
Ohio State 13-15
Take it fwiw, but in no way does Rutgers have an argument for why recruits should choose their school over psu..
I loved Chicago whenever I visited, but it's too small of a sample to make a decision about living there. Philly was meh. I have a lot of friends from there, but outside of visiting them I can't see why I'd ever go back.

Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Popular misconception up here, but fratty=/= Jersey. Far from it.
People up here don't seem to get that, including people in Greek life.
This is 100% false. Some of the country's most affluent neighborhoods are up here...whereas Philly has all the appeal of a tire fire. I get that it has some nice areas, but it is not a great city. I am tired of this Jersey stereotype based on an MTV show where ONE of its cast was actually from New Jersey, and on 3 total exits on the Turnpike. The worst city in New Jersey, is right across the water from Philly.

Yep. I'm not sure why, but people believe that every dbag is a "jersey boy."
Haha, not every frat guy is a dbag either.
I rip on Jersey just as much as the next guy, but it's usually joking towards a friend. The longest I've been in Philly was 20 minutes when we went too far on the highway by accident a few years ago. Don't really have a reason to go back either, so.... Yeah.
Not frat guys, but fratty guys. Plenty of friends in fraternities, but the guys who go above and beyond to get the label "fratty" are all dbags. You don't actually have to be in a fraternity to be "fratty" either.
As for Philly, I'd imagine not many people who aren't from eastern PA, NJ, DE or MD have too much of a reason to want to live in Philly. The people aren't exactly the nicest and it's not a booming city right now. There aren't many cities that people from outside the area seek out. Maybe NY, DC, Chicago, LA, and SF. Those are the only cities that I think have a national pull and even Chicago probably shouldn't be on there.
And Camden is even worse than Philly so...
I've never heard that New Jersey was associated with "frat guys". How long has that been the case?
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Really picked up when "jersey shore" started.
"The" Jersey Shore? Those guys are nothing like the frat guys I knew when I was in one.
Agreed about those that go above and beyond and not having to be in a fraternity. What's weird is that part of being fratty is not giving a , but the people who REALLY try to be fratty obviously care about how fratty they are way too much to actually be fratty.
TBH the people in Philly as a whole seem to be obnoxious and blatantly brash. Most of my friends from the area aren't exactly polite or nice until you get to know them. However once you do they're just as friendly as anybody else from any other part of the country, it just takes longer to get them to warm up I guess.
True. The main reason I want to move back to Texas at some point is because it's my home, and I have a lot of family nearby and at my age obviously still have a lot of close friends there. Personally I'd love to love in Atlanta or Savannah for a while, but I would definitely understand why people wouldn't be drawn there.
Ever since I've been in school up here.
Why do you consider Chicago Douche central of the US????
Also why do dislike Philly? Do just hate on big city folk?
Chicago should definitely be on your list. It's very much a world class city.
Nah I like most of my coworkers from Chicago. Atlanta, Dallas, San Diego, Seattle, Denver, New York, Houston...any of them are quality places and people.
Now teach me more about Chicago please. Can't wait to learn.
And the infrastructure of Chicago is falling apart. The governmental infrastructure is killing Illinois right now, putting most of its stress on Chicagoland. Do you want the numbers to back it up?

Being fratty doesn't make you any more or less cool or fun to be around, but people at PSU don't seem to get that. The thing to do is wear bright colored pennies and put shit in your hair. Just is what it is nowadays I guess.
Sure, why don't you share those numbers. I'd be interested in that. I haven't been living in Chicago that long so I don't know much about the history, finances of the city, etc. I also live in Lincoln Park, a neighborhood in the city where a lot of the people aren't native Chicagoans or people that don't plan on living in the city long term.
It is definitely a very racially segregated city. A friend that works for one of the local ministries here in Chicago recommended reading the books Family Properties and The Making of the Second Ghetto. Both books are about greedy slumlords used redlining and discriminatory urban housing policy to make tons of money, but causing segregation and poverty. Apparently the Chicago model was something copied in most major cities in the North.
The infrastructure is falling apart all across the country. The American Society of Civil Engineers basically rates everything in the U.S. C or below. It's only a matter of time before another bridge collapses like the one in Minneapolis in 2008.
I legally can't say much more before then. But I know plenty about the transportation infrastructure in Chicago and throughout the state. I can promise you that.
Yea cause Patterson, the oranges, newark, irvington, elizabeth...etc are so nice
