I was told Georgetown is unsafe besides the university. Any insights on similar areas for DC?

DC and NYC are largely safe. I doubt you’ll get to unsafe areas doing touristy things

like

DC - If it’s your visit I’m assuming you want to visit the mall with the monuments, capitol, etc. I would stay near there in Cap Hill, Barracks Row (visit Eastern Market), Navy Yard (Nats ballpark - I lived in this neighborhood for 4 years and loved it).

Thank you! Yes I am looking to visit all the free Museum and monuments

Visit the Wharf in DC! Lots of great restaurants there.

First time in NYC? That’ll tell me to cater towards more touristy things or not.

Hello, I have received an offer from Southwest Airlines as a Associate Technology Analyst with their direct college hire program. Will be graduating in May with a degree in MIS and also have internships experience as a Business Systems analyst intern. The salary compensation started off at 66,500 but was looking for the 75k range and they got back to me saying the best they can do is 68,500. They also have a 401k company match up to 9.3%. Do you think this is a solid offer for this job market?
