Looking for Rice North!

I am planning to apply early decision to Rice University and it seems like the perfect school for me (even though I can’t visit.) I like the size, residential colleges, no grad students and strong physics department. The only negative is climate. I live in NC and I hate the heat. I would prefer a northern school. I am a HS senior this year.

4.4 weighted gpa
1570 SAT
Will have IB diploma and 5 AP’s in math and physics with 4 or 5.

Merit scholarship opportunities would be nice but not necessary.

I don’t care about sports.

Can anyone recommend schools I should look at that might be similar to Rice, but colder climate?
