I am thinking about going to either Jamaica or the US Virgin Islands before I start in July. Would any of you recommend one over the other?

They are quite different. The US Virgin Islands is basically like a touristy part of Florida, full of American tourists and very commercial. While Jamaica is still full of tourists and is commercial, it seems more like a vacation and less like home.
Either way, the weather should be beautiful in both those places. Cutting it kinda close though, aren't you?

I like jamaica a lot. Be careful not to fry your brain before you start though. Do partake in green activities though, it will make it even more enjoyable.

Either you sling crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot

USVI are far superior to Jamaica. I would take that in a heartbeat.
