UVM is a fantastic school which provides a great academic setting. The faculty are very helpful and I found the classes to be very engaging. So UVM gets that part exactly right. What I ended up not liking about UVM was the social scene. You will have a hard time fitting in unless you are very, very liberal (at times its to the point where its unrealistic). There are a lot of hippies, and skateboard/snowboarding punks. It doesn't feel like a fully fledged college to me, more like a hybrid of college and high school. The townies will probably not treat you very well if they perceive you to be an out of stater. The party scene is OK, but overall I thought it was kind of lame (mostly because of how COLD it gets). Many of the parties end up getting busted by the cops before 12. I found that many of the people I met here were very close minded. On a side note, this school is WAY overpriced. I'll end it with a bit of advice: avoid this school unless you are from Vermont/New England, and have money to waste. There are schools where you will have more fun and get an equally good education for a much lower price.
