Full time photography student = D7000 I would think (except on the video side if they must have fps of other than 24 at 1080 or a swivel screen, then yes video could be a deal-breaker).

D7000 provides CLS control of off camera flashes, screwdriver lens capability, better build, isn't there some metering advantage with AI and AIS lenses, AF fine tune (deal breaker for me). The only limitation I find with the D7000 in the field is small buffer so your 6fps bursts must be well considered ones as you only get about 2 seconds of shooting or less before it bogs down.

Plus Nikon is basically giving away D7000 right now for under $1000 and the DxOMark score for a D7000 is basically the same as the D3200, so sensor-wise the D5200 just offers larger printing or deeper crops (and a full time photo student should be avoiding deep crops anyways).

Both are probably great cameras though, so I can see this being a tough decision!
