In 1988, Mayer published a strong form of Vaught's Conjecture for o-minimal theories. She showed Vaught's Conjecture holds, and characterized the number of countable models of an o-minimal theory T if T has fewer than continuum many countable models. Friedman and Stanley have shown that several elementary classes are Borel complete. In this thesis we address the class of countable models of an o-minimal theory T when T has continuum many countable models. Our main result gives a model theoretic dichotomy describing the Borel complexity of isomorphism on the class of countable models of T. The first case is if T has no simple types, isomorphism is Borel on the class of countable models of T. In the second case, T has a simple type over a finite set A, and there is a finite set B containing A such that the class of countable models of the completion of T over B is Borel complete.
