Sure, this winter's been pretty mild everywhere. But in general, Ithaca ain't exactly Key West.
No, it isn't. Honestly, weather was one of the reasons that I considered choosing Duke over Cornell. In the end, it was a minor consideration. The neighborhood I live in here in Ithaca is pretty nice, and the weather is not a big deal.
Sure, and the emphasis on weather/location will vary from person to person. I couldn't do Ithaca, and I'm sure there's a healthy contingent of people out there who couldn't do Durham. OP should visit both and, assuming cost is roughly the same, choose based on personal fit.
