Which you shouldn't in this case. Apples-to-apples, Chicago and Philadelphia neighborhoods are equally expensive. The disparity in listed COA figures probably derives from the fact that you're comparing Streeterville to University City. The neighborhoods convenient to both campuses vary widely in both cost and quality.
Noted, but can anyone confirm/deny that NU CB #s are about equal to Penn/UVA?
Beyond anecdotal examples, unfortunately, no. Penn is very non-transparent about these things. The closest we get is a pie chart compiling the grades of all Penn students who got offers at given firms aggregated over the past five years.
