About Baltimore

Photo of Camden Yards

Baltimore is a city of roughly 600,000 that boasts many of the advantages of an eastern seaboard city without the overwhelming size of its neighbors on the east coast. The coastal location makes the weather relatively temperate with winters averaging 18 inches of snowfall (the average number of snowy days is 10; the average high in February is 45°F and the average low is 29°F). Our fellows are typically split among those with and without children and the city is well suited to either situation.
