Anybody been to any of these? thanks guys
Lol at Middlebury. Unless you got 65k to spend a year I would stay away from them.
I go to Plymouth, good party and skiing school, probably sub-par academics.
I heard Castleton is the Plymouth of Vermont but less fun.
I got into UVM but prices are steep, Burlington is a fucking awesome "city" though so any school there would be sick(and you can visit all of them).
I really depends, are you going for an above average education? Because most of those schools can facilitate that, the drawback is there is a VERY limited social life. If you want more of a social aspect, a few of those schools will do it for you.
