I had a similar internal debate a few months ago when deciding between Temple and schools in Florida. I'm a non-trad planning to study international law. I've spent a lot of time doing business overseas and have also lived abroad. In my opinion, the most important aspect of studying anything international is experiencing what you are studying first hand. So, to me, a strong exchange program is very important. I'm not sure what Vermont provides, however if you research Temple, you'll find programs in all corners of the world. Plus, they're currently adding exchange programs as we speak. Another aspect I feel is important is how effectively the school can bring the world into the classroom. The bottom line here is that Temple is located in a major international city where diplomats, foreign businessmen, etc. are constantly visiting and doing business. Furthermore, Temple does a great job of tapping into these resources when setting up guest speakers and workshops. In researching schools in Florida, it became evident that they could not compete with Temple using the criteria I found important. Like I said, I know nothing about Vermont, but I'm assuming the same holds true for them when compared to Temple. I chose Temple and will be attending this fall. Good luck with your decision!
