    I think Buffalo probably offers a better education, but PITT is very well thought of. In deciding between the two, I personally would take price and location as my primary reasons for one program over another. Considering that they are both rust belt cities (although I think Pitt has recently undergone some major improvements), I would probably weigh the cost more. If you are a resident of either state, go to that school...if not, go to the one that you feel you will be more comfortable with. I cannot speak for PITT, but at Buffalo the students are generally happy with both the school and our social lives...

    Good luck with your decision, either way...you can't lose

      they are both great schools.
      if i had been accepted ( i got waitlisted) to buffalo i would have a hard time deciding between the two.
      it all depends on what ur looking for in a school and what kind of environment would allow u to be successful

        which one did you end up picking? I've been to both schools for interview, and pittsburgh might have the look of a metro city but it might just be too expensive without much to offer. Night life suffers in both cities in the winter, but at least there's Toronto just a couple of hours away from Buffalo.
