Where Am I Going?

Copyright © 2004, DeLoggio Achievement Program.  All rights reserved.

For several months now, you've been researching law schools.  You've read the web pages, talked to admissions reps, surfed a few chat groups.  And nowhere, nowhere, did they tell you about the 100 inches of snow -- or the 88 days of thunderstorms. So as my Christmas gift to you this year, I'm herewith providing the answers to those all-important questions.  

The data included here comes from a number of sources:  

  • Climate data came from Places Rated Almanac All New Edition 1993 (well, it was all new in 1993!)  
    • Summer and winter temperatures are average, not the highest or lowest.  The highs tend to run about 10 degrees higher than the number shown here.  
    • Storm days seem about right; inches of snow seems high if you live in an urban area (where captured heat reduces accumulation), more accurate for suburban and rural locales.

The schools are in alphabetical order by state and city, since that's how I researched them.  So browse now, come back when you're holding an acceptance letter in your hand, and prepare yourself for the rigors of wherever you're heading.
