This might get modded and extended later, but remember my Iowa City post that basically proved it's like the U of I is a mutant high school?
That's not even including community colleges, which puts the number in the mid-20's. Compare that to Boston, which boasts 28 in a population of over 4 mil.
It's quite a cool place to
visit go to school in because it's such a young city [not Compton young, but still, quite young.] The mixture of Wire-like reality and Calvert Hall fantasy [most stuff falls in between] make it hip, edgy, and not too expensive. And really young.
I recommend going to school there..
It's also home to the one of the cheapest independent college beers ever.
