wrong. i grew up with this kind of weather, and I appreciate four real seasons a year. see, this is what i'm talking about. is everyone on TLS from like a tropical location? you know, some people LIKE heavy winters, skiing, fires, etc. There are far worse places than Ithaca if you're really against cold weather.
What WOULD get to me is a place where there is only a 30-40-degree temperature range year-round like, hrm, charlottesville? where it never drops below freezing so winters are just an unpleasant low 40's with nothing to look forward to.

Besides climate, what really turned me off about UVA/charlottesville was the fact that the law school is completely separated from the town and rest of the school. I really don't like the idea of needing a car to do everything. There literally isn't a single establishment or apartment that isn't a good 15-20 minute walk. And that was only offered as a 'well if you REALLY want to walk...', sounds like a car is just part of your life there. not for me.
