Cast Your Vote for 2010's Top Study Abroad Destination!

Forget about basketball and top seeds, underdogs and stats: Study Abroad Mania turns the NCAA college basketball tournament (which kicked off yesterday in the U.S.!) on its head, and we want you to join the fun!

We have generated a random bracket of our 32 locations and are inviting everyone – staff, students, alumni, and anyone else – to vote on each of the head-to-head match-ups until only one city remains. The last city standing will be crowned the “Top Study Abroad Destination of 2010.”

Voting is now open on our Facebook fan page on the “Mania” tab. You do not need to have a Facebook account to vote.

Consider this when voting: If you were going to study abroad, regardless of your age or where you may have studied abroad in the past, where would you most want to study abroad?

You will be allowed only one vote for each matchup. Each round of voting will be open for one week, starting on Thursday and concluding the following Wednesday. The city accumulating the most votes within each matchup for the week will advance to the next round.

The voting periods are:
Round 1 Voting: Thursday, March 18 - Wednesday, March 24
Round 2 Voting: Thursday, March 25 - Wednesday, March 31
Round 3 Voting: Thursday, April 1 - Wednesday, April 7
Round 4 Voting: Thursday, April 8 - Wednesday, April 14
Championship Voting: Thursday, April 15 - Wednesday, April 21

The winning city will be announced on Thursday, April 22 after the final round of voting has concluded.

Spread the word and build a case to help move your top pick to the winning position!

Have fun voting!
