<p>well first of all wat do u mean TOP?
TOP 20,50 or 100 ?
here are several schools located in US "global cities"</p>

- UChicago
- Loyola Chicago
- NWestern</p>

<p>New York City:
- Columbia</p>

- Harvard
- Tufts

<p>Los Angeles:
- USC</p>

<p>San Francisco:
- CAL Berkeley</p>

- Penn
- Drexel</p>

- AU
- GTown</p>

- Emory
- GT</p>

- UMiami</p>

- WashU</p>

- John Hopkins</p>

<p>Anyways all those are in big cities. Most named as "global cities"
Moreover all schools are Tier 1 schools according to US News. Some are ivy Leagues, while the rest are in the top 50.</p>

<p>There are all sorts of 'urban campuses.' You should look into them to see which one is more your style.</p>

<p>There are the 'walled-off garden' ones (Columbia)
There are the ones with no real cohesive/grassy campus (NYU)
And there are the ones somewhere in between.</p>

<p>I am particularly fond of the Columbia and Penn campuses. One minute you're in the urban jungle, another you're in Elysian gardens...</p>

<p>PS check out Penn's BioPond...the epitome of an "urban oasis" <a href="http://www.bio.upenn.edu/facilities/greenhouse/biopond/%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.bio.upenn.edu/facilities/greenhouse/biopond/&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>acarta....the University of Washington has a campus in Seattle. the school that the majority of CC posters refer to as WashU is Washington University at St Louis.</p>

<p>Both, however, are great schools in urban areas.</p>
