Berkley! Well... I'd rather go to awesome Cornel (they have an AWESOME paleontology program), but the weather is horrible. I'm spoiled by the wonderful California weather. Nasty weather is 35 degrees and raining. That is REALLY bad.

Oh come on. It's really not that bad.

Yes, it gets cold in the winter there, but there's very little snow.

And I can't think of a better place to spend the spring/summer/fall than in the finger lakes.

I can deal with the cold and the snow, just the whole not seeing the sun for weeks at a time would drive me insane!! California has spoiled me. :mrgreen:

Pepperdine. It's an awesome school, worth it for the view alone. Fortunately they have a great business program as well.

Nah, it hasn't gotten warmer than about 10 or 15 here lately, until today, which felt like a heat wave (it was 38). It's been below zero quite frequently lately though.

You really can't beat the finger lakes though.

You can if you want your college to have the practical aspect of things to do...
