To save you a lot of reading, the main point of this review is
Good school, Good faculty, Shitty people

Good school, for the instate price. Out of state is a whole different matter. My freshman year, the student body consisted mainly of outdoorsy, laid back people who were in love with living life. Now that I'm about to graduate, I feel that the student body quite rapidly became snide, ultra-hip d-bags that are in love with themselves. In order to afford outstate tuition, which has increased quite precipitously since 2008, you HAVE to be rich. This, combined with UVM hipster friendly atmosphere has led to an abnormally high concentration of very specific types of people. I can't count the number of times I went to go see a really good punk band (burlington has a FANTASTIC local punk scene) only to find the venue clogged with dicks in box-frame glasses who stand through the entire show with their arms folded. If these people seem tolerable, the other half of UVM consisted of assholes from the urban northeast who think they're the next Timothy Leary. I think these people flock to UVM because they see it as a place where they can be in the majority, unlike the high schools they went to where they were probably rightfully bullied. I kept my friends reduced to a few kids with scholarships who were there to get an education and native Vermonters. I just moved to Boston for an out-of-state internship, and within weeks I'm already having a much better time.
