I'll second rent, and also the lakefront. I don't know of any other city in the world with such a beautiful and easily accessible public space. Such an incredible resource to live within walking distance of in the summer.

Everyone I know who's never been to the city thinks I have to live in fear for my survival. So I'd say everything about the city is underrated. Corruption is also a good one. Everyone thinks they live in the most corrupted city in the country. We actually do.

Honestly, the overall quality of life you get for the price is way underrated. It's more affordable than any city on either coast, has an extraordinary arts and culture scene, great food, and so much more.

The food scene, the bar scene, n the twist on everyone’s rent comment is just housing prices in general if you’re buying.

What I just bought would would easily go for 3x the price in PNW, California, New England, or dc.

Late night thoughts - I cannot figure out when to throw in the towel on consulting. I just switched to a Big 4 role two weeks ago and I feel like my stress has shot up significantly. I hate traveling for work and I want a role with good WLB. I know two weeks is nothing and I feel like a failure for giving up so easily but I feel I'm just not made out for this kind of life. Should I just suck it up and stick it out for two more years for the exit opps?
