Thanks to everyone for participating.
Hawai'i Manoa and Berkeley were the top 2 vote getters in the final poll, but Hawai'i clearly (for obvious reasons) was the best vote getter in all the rounds. New York City was very strong as were San Luis Obispo (especially in the middle round) and New Orleans. Portland remained steady from start to finish, with Seattle and Miami fizzling out a bit in the final.
Some other popular locations that didn't quite make the final cut included Tempe, AZ along with Austin, TX, Davis/Sac, CA and Boston, MA, Pittsburgh, Philly, Atlanta and a return to Madison, WI also received strong marks.
