Baltimore Is One of the Best Cities for New Grads

Share the News


The Class of 2015 will be graduating in just a few short weeks. And if these newly-minted college graduates know what’s good for them, they’ll move to Baltimore.

So recommends Forbes, at least, which has deemed Baltimore the 9th best city for new college graduates in 2015. Back in 2013, when Forbes made the same list based on just rent costs and average starting salaries, Baltimore didn’t make the cut. This year, they changed the algorithm slightly, and we earned our spot by having a high proportion of millennial residents (25 percent of the city’s population!), cheap-ish rents, decent nightlife, and low-ish unemployment.  Here’s who beat us:

1. Washington, DC

2. Minneapolis

3. Denver

4. San Francisco

5. Boston

6. Austin

7. Seattle

8. Raleigh
