Metro Philadelphia definition[edit]

What exactly is the definition of metro Philadelphia here? It seems to be just Philadelphia + Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks, and Chester Counties, and to exclude schools in Delaware and New Jersey suburbs? Should that be clarified? john k 15:46, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

If you look at other articles (Pennsylvania metropolitan areas and Delaware Valley), the metro Philadelphia area is defined as the Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington area, containing 13 counties in 4 states (see Delaware Valley#Counties making up the Delaware Valley). Thus, you should include out-of-Pennsylvania schools. I added back UMDNJ, which seems to be the only school you removed. UMDNJ in Camden, NJ is probably closer to Philadelphia than any other school not located within the city itself. Unless, you want to rename the template or heading to something like "Pennsylvania colleges and universities in metropolitan Philadelphia", which I do not oppose. --Scott Alter 05:40, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
