i don't know if you're mocking me, but yes, that's a huge consideration for me. i would likely miss tons of class in colder climates bc i HATE having to be outside in cold weather.

Hi hun,

I know some people think this isn't even a decision, or if it is, it's dumb, but I'm feelin you on this issue. I think the CONTEXT in which you study law can be important for many people. What is the campus like? What is the city like? And yes, even what is the weather like. When I called Emory admissions, I was told they get a significant number of Canadian applicants each year who tell them weather is a big reason for going south instead of staying in Canada.

That said, as someone else mentioned before, your career aspirations come in to this too. If you want to go big law or academics, then T14 it is, no questions asked. If you want to do something else, and don't care about the money, fame, blah, blah, or don't weigh it as so important, then do consider these other factors more. The same way law schools look at your numbers, then your soft factors, you should do the same.

Good luck, and no you're not crazy!

not mocking you...

I wont even apply to most of the good schools because I know there is no way I could live in the cold again!

Limits my options, but its better than going and then dropping out... :-[

It's good to know other people think the same way I do regarding weather.

Just save your declines for the higher ranked schools, so you can bring them out when someone gives you attitude...

"Oh yeah, I got into Boalt.  Just didnt satisfy my needs..."   ;D

And just out of curiosity, is "leaky juice box" what Im hoping( ;D) or just wishful thinking...  ::)

On blueb73's idea of saving away acceptances to higher schools you turned down... i actually have a friend who saved her harvard acceptance letter. she stayed in canada for school bc it was cheaper, but whenever she's feeling miserable, gets a crappy grade, gets dumped, out comes the letter! "I'm too needy?? You don't want me, Matt?? WELL A GUY NAMED HARVARD DOES"
