Please compare the liberal arts colleges...pros and cons and so forth. I'd like to major in either English or Political Science (maybe looking towards law school, eventually,)

Specifically, I've heard that Swarthmore is a little more prestigious--for what that's worth, but I've also heard that it's nasty and cutthroat. Carleton is supposed to have a great attitude, but the weather is allegedly raunchy cold.

A friend was admitted to both
had hard decision and flew back and forth again after admission to compare. ( from left coast)
He decided on Carleton for similar reasons to your post however he spent junior year in Bali ( or at least a term) so he did get some sun!
