The t2i is going to be a higher end camera. It competes against the d5100, d5000. The D3200 is just going to up an update d3100.

A basic dSLR camera is as cheap (and that is what it is, basic) as a good bridge but lenses? There is no such thing as a good cheap lens and what about dust problems on the sensor or having to carry around a bagfull of lenses. Each to their own but whatever camera you buy Cammervst do your own thing and enjoy it
Cammervst wants low light, and the bridge camera as a whole are really not that good at it. Every now and then you with the right lighting condition. They produce a pretty decent low light shoot, but they are far from consistent in low light. A base entry level dslr will still run circles around the best bridge camera in the low light department.

I purchased the Nikon D3200 and a AF-S 55-300mm lens. I've been playing a bit with it today and having fun. I'm such a beginner that I don't really understand anything about these setups, but I'll try to learn. Now I'm curious...what are other good lenses, accessories I should get with this camera?

If you are shooting low light, either the af-s 35 1.8 or the af-s 50 1.8. And make sure you do not get the AF 50 1.8, that one will not Auto Focus on your camera. Get a good flash. Extra battery is always good and a second memory card.

What about a screen protector. Any recommendations for that?

Get one that is pre cut for your camera, they fit better, any brand is good.

Are the screen protectors for the D3100 the same as the D3200? I'm not finding anything for the 3200, but loads of protectors for the 3100. I'm assuming they will work for my model (D3200). Is this accurate?

Not sure if they are the same. check if it is the same size lcc for the 3100 and 3200. That will tell you if it will fit.
