Hello All,


As the title above explains, I have offers for PhD in English from both these places. I got off the waitlist at both these places and now I must decide within a few hours which one to go to. I would sincerely appreciate any kind of feedback on the English programs of these two places  since my preferences for advisors etc. are more or less the same in these places. 


Any help at all is appreciated, so please be generous...

Are the funding packages comparable, controlling for differences in cost-of-living between the two?


And do you want to be in a college town (Iowa) or a city (Pitt)?

Yeah, the funding packages and stipends are comparable taking into account the expenses of a big city. To be honest, Pitt's offer may be marginally low but they are giving me a fellowship the first year whereas Iowa wants me to start teaching from the first year itself
