MILWAUKEE — A recent study shows that Milwaukee is the third best city to live in after graduating from college.

Following college graduation, students are faced with the task of figuring out where they want to go next. Suddenly you find yourself with your entire future in front of you, and you have complete control over where you go and what you do.

Making those decisions can be hard. However, a recent study from Smart Asset may help students make decisions a bit easier.

The new study breaks down the best cities to live in after graduation, based on the cost of living, jobs, and fun. Milwaukee sits at No. 3 overall.

115 cities were analyzed for this study.

To be even more specific, Milwaukee ranked 13th in the fun category and 28th in affordability. According to the study, "Milwaukee's relatively high ranking for the category of fun is due in part to the fact that it has the 12th-best average Yelp rating for bars in the study, at 3.94."

Ahead of Milwaukee, you'll find Cincinnati and Lexington with Nashville in fourth. Yes, we beat Nashville!
