You obviously like the colder climates. You'll find a lot of good schools in these states. Some to check out:
Wisconsin -- Marquette, Lawrence, Ripon, U. Wisconsin-Madison.
Minnesota -- Carleton, St. Olaf, Macalester, U. Minnesota-Minneapolis, plus maybe St. John's
Michigan -- Kalamazoo, U. Michigan, Michigan State
Ohio -- Miami University, Oberlin, Kenyon, Denison, Wooster, Case Western Reserve, U. Cincinnati, Baldwin-Wallace, Ohio U., Ohio State (plus others because there are a LOT of colleges in Ohio!)
Maine -- Bowdoin, Colby, Bates
Vermont -- Bennington
Nebraska -- Nebraska Wesleyan, U. Nebraska
Connecticut -- Yale, U. Connecticut
Nevada -- U. Nevada-Las Vegas (are there any other schools there?)
I think North and South Dakota only have the state universities there, but they might be willing to part with some financial aid to bring in people from out of state. Some of these other schools are generous with merit-based aid (which is different from need-based aid). Wooster, for instance, meets 93% of a student's demonstrated financial need, but 40% of their student body also receives merit-based aid. Some of these other small liberal arts colleges meet 100% of the student's demonstrated financial need. Another factor to consider is getting from wherever you are to some of these schools -- you might need to change planes twice and then still drive to get to the school.
