As someone with experience in both A2 and Ithaca, I think it's more of a "midwest vibe" vs. "east coast" vibe than anything else.

You're definitely doing Ann Arbor wrong. It has over 3x as many people than Ithaca - if you don't see the difference between Ann Arbor and a small town, it means that you probably aren't taking advantage of all the stuff going on in and around Ann Arbor. Some people are snobby about Detroit, but it seriously has a great music & art scene, and while you don't want to walk around alone there at night, its perfectly safe to go to museums & shows there.

If you combine Ithaca City and Ithaca Town, it is half the size of AA. I don't know anyone who does the Detroit thing, and I'm on my fourth year living here. Plus, I'm not really talking about the "arts" scene. I'm talking about how they are both freezing cold towns far from any desirable city.

Hmm. Well I live here and go to detroit with friends all the time. Not unusual at all [That's why I suggested you might just be doing AA wrong]. I don't know what you mean/want out of a desirable city. And if you just were looking for which is colder, try weather.com.

You sound super awesome. I've decided that you should probably go hang out in Ithaca.

There are better ways to decide between Michigan and Cornell.

You really do sound like a jerk.. and I'm not saying this to antagonize you, just trying to help you reflect on your growing reputation on TLS.

Ann Arbor > Ithaca for sure.

Ithaca's "beauty" is way overrated and the campus was pretty unkept last time I was there. Add the mixture of too much snow, being cold, and having the campus literally in the middle of nowhere pushes it just a little over the top (on the bad end) for me.

You can/really should just start and finish with job prospects and scholarship money.

not uncommon for 0l's to want to prove themselves on here though. I doubt OP is actually this smug in real life.
