Hold Your Applause

Apartment.com and CareerRookie.com have released their fourth annual list of the Top 10 Best Cities for Recent College Graduates.  The press release says:

The “Top 10 Best Cities for Recent College Graduates” list was based on the ranking of top U.S. cities with the highest concentration of young adults (age 20 to 24) from the U.S. Census Bureau (2010), inventory of jobs requiring less than one year of experience from CareerRookie.com (March, 2011) and the average cost of rent for a one bedroom apartment from Apartments.com (March, 2011).
Exactly how these data sources were used is undisclosed.

Anyway, here's the list.  Each "city's" name is followed by its average rent for a one-bedroom apartment

1. Hartford-New Haven ($1,047)

2. Cleveland ($695)

3. Boston ($1,625)

4. Denver ($994)

5. Minneapolis ($941)

6. San Francisco ($1,560)

7. Washington D.C. ($1,679)

8. Philadelphia ($1,068)

9. Atlanta ($813)

10. St. Louis ($826)
