Mosty A’s: You belong in Cambridge/Somerville!

Full of academic rigor and environmental awareness, Cambridge/ Somerville is the innovation-hub of Boston. You can find your chi laying out in Harvard Yard, but you also appreciate the challenge of some of the world’s top institutions. You most likely work for a start-up and wear thickly-rimmed glasses to pull off your hipster look.

Mostly B’s: Allston/ Brighton/ Fenway are your stomping-grounds.

You belong in college-central; you can deal with everyone from BU breathing down your neck because of the amazing and eclectic food choices and arts surrounding you. Being so close to Fenway and the gem that is the North End isn’t so bad either. You probably are working on your grad-degree while you walk dogs and serve lattes on the weekend.

Mostly C’s: You can’t wait to explore Downtown/ Back Bay.

Your career has already taken off in the most up-and-coming area in Boston. Fort Point and Seaport are being built-up by Boston’s biggest architecture firms, so it’s booming economic and business-oriented atmosphere is perfect for your ambitious and diligent attitude. You most definitely are an intern, or maybe even a new employee, of one of the many businesses growing their roots in Downtown.

Mostly D’s: Stop pretending you’re in college, you better go home to “The Burbs” (Medford, Malden, Jamaica Plain, etc.)

You’ve lived in every other part of Boston paying the highest rents imaginable, and now you know you want to settle down with your dog in The Burbs. Cheaper rent makes up for the longer commute, plus you get a bigger yard and some peace and quiet from all those college hooligans. Don’t fret, you still get the chance to experience the best of Boston, just on your own terms. Plus, you’re frugal financials and time-management skills makes you smarter than the rest of us in our 20s.
