UVA is regular ol' mid atlantic 4 seasons. Sweating your balls off in the DC-area humidity at the height of summer, and beautiful snowball-fight-style snow in the winter.

The weather is decent, but better than the East Coast/Midwest. I'd guess UVA and Duke have better weather.

The weather in UVA is not that much different than the rest of the Mid-Atlantic. Highs in the mid 40's- low 50's and lows from the mid 20's to mid 30's this week.

It's been cold and wet this fall/early winter out here. I like that it actually gets warm in Virginia and there's a nice fall. Berkeley is usually between 55 and 70 all year.

All of this wildly inaccurate stereotyping about NYC and misunderstanding its subway systems is making me question what I can actually believe in this thread.

Overall, Berkeley seems to be the winner.

I've partied with a bunch of CLS people and they seem to get out and do fun things, but yes... they come off as very intense. NYU people seem cool, but the sample size is way too small for me to draw any conclusions. UVA students seem to have a ball. All of this is observed from the outside, of course.

I love sweeping generalizations.

Everything south of times square and north of the financial district is hipsterville.
