    I'm here and I love it. There's tons to do, you're not far from Boston or NYC. If you're not used to cold winters than pack plenty of warm clothes because they get bad. Also, I think the days are soo much shorter here. The sun will start going down at like 4 pm. Other than that, I absolutely love it here.

    We love it here too. I'm from CT and dh is originally from NJ. January and February can be brutually cold but other than that the summers are nice (not too hot) and spring and Fall are awesome. It's a nice place to live, small town feel not a lot of traffic. There's lots of places to go hiking, camping, etc if you're into that type of thing. There is a lot to do and see if you're willing to drive a little

    ok well regarding colleges more specifically law schools i've done some research and it looks like the closest one is about an hour to an hour and a half away. i mean i'm sure i could go part time (evening) but i don't know i'd have to look at it more in depth once i figure out where i'm gonna be...any of ya'll going to be in school or have been in school while ya'll were up there? i'm living in texas and have been for the last 12 1/2 years so i understand hot summers. the only thing i really want is 4 seasons, good law school and somewhere where we are together lol

    There are UCONN satelite campuses closeby and Willamantic is not that far away. I have a friend that lives up there and it's about 35 minute commute for her dh.
