Currently weighing two FT offers- one is an EB but in their boston office, the other is a less prestigious firm in NY. The boston firm is definitely a better firm and I'd rather work there, I'm just nervous about living in Boston because I grew up in LA and have worked in NY my past two summers so I'm kind of a city snob.
My favorite parts of NY were the night life and being able to get off work at midnight and still go out for a few hours, followed by pizza at some god forsaken hour. I know that isn't possible in Boston, but is the night life decent? Are there good clubs/bars? In my experience, Boston kind of seems like a great place for when you're married with kids at age 35, but is there a good scene for young people too?
Also, 99% of my college friends will be in NY, whereas I don't know anyone in Boston. On top of that, the offer I would be taking in Boston is for a regional office that's pretty small, so it's not like I would have a 50 person analyst class to go party with. Is my social life going to suck in Boston?
There's a lot of posts on here about how Chicago/Atlanta/other random midwestern city is better than NY, but I can't seem to find much on Boston. Any opinions would be great!
