    Just off the top of my head, and checked with quick Google searches:

    New York: Columbia U
    Chicago: U of Chicago
    San Francisco: U of California at Berkeley
    Philadelphia: U of Pennsylvania
    Los Angeles: Cal Tech, UCLA

    Depending on your definition of "major city" you can probably add more:

    U of Michigan (Ann Arbor), U of Arizona (Tucson), U of Texas (Austin), etc.
