I live in Florida and scholarships confine choices to only Florida. I am thinking either FIU, UCF, or USF (although if you have a better suggestion tell me why). And to give a little background I am wanting to do engineering (most likely Biomedical) or medicine. But as an added bonus I am learning Russian and therefore would like have a minor in the language and possibly study abroad.

Give me your personal experiences and knowledge. I would just like to hear at least a few thoughtful responses .

If your looking into a future in Biology, USF has a really good program. They have invested alot of money and resources in building that program, they have new buildings and equipment, ect.

Dude UCF?

Screw college and join UFC instead. Same letters in a different order, and you get to fight people for a living. That's also rather close of KFC... hm, I'm gonna have to go excuse myself and get some chiggen', brb.
mmmmmmhmmm

That's exactly what I've been trying to say.

UF don't know anything about the school but at least they have a good football team.

I don't that's what you should be worrying about.


Don't really think do you?

I cannot help you otherwise because I live in Canada and only know about the universities in my area so I'll leave you with this...

USF.

Where I live doesn't matter because if I want to go to college then it will have to be far away. What I am saying is that all of these colleges are worlds away from my place.

Go to UCF. I'm a student there. We have great programs for Engineering and BiodMed students. One of my roommates is in engineering and loves it. It's a great campus and really big. It's more of a modern campus than other Florida universities. There's always something to do and we're only half a hour from the theme parks (40 minutes tops, except if you're to Disney, maybe 45 minutes. Depends, but it's not far!)! Plus, anything and everything you want in terms of food and retail is only within a few miles of the campus (Best Buy, 3 Wal-Marts, a billion Game Stops, various outlet stores and shopping plazas are only with 1-2 [maybe less] miles from campus). It's so much fun and living isn't that expensive. Right now I pay $600 a month for everything. All I need is grocery money and extra spending money. Next year I'm getting a house with some friends and rent is $288 plus $100 for utilities. Not bad. Go check it out. It's a fantastic school. Currently the largest school in Florida and 3rd largest in the United States.

I'm guessing you didn't apply to UF/aren't good enough? Honestly UF and UM are the only quality schools in Florida with FSU/UCF/USF making up a second tier in that order.

Oh **** UF and UM. You only get in if you can afford it and you're likely to fail anyway. Everyone I know that went to UF and UM are douchebags and almost failed out of college. Seriously. They're only good because they have good football teams. That's it. PERIOD.

Someone's bitter. You realize pretty much anyone who can get into UF can afford it because (almost) full bright futures has practically the same requirements. And you can say that about pretty much every private school, UM is no different.

Not everyone has Bright Futures. Even so, Bright Futures is counting for less each year. Like I said before, everyone at UF and UM are douchbags and stupid. They have money and the smarts but waste both on getting high and drunk and they fail. I could've gotten into either school easily but UCF is more of my kind of school. And in terms of location, it's so much better than UF or UM. I'm not they're really bad schools, only that I wouldn't go there nor do I encourage anybody to go there with the experiences my friends have have had.

I guess I'm a stupid douchebag who stereotypes all UCF students as stupid douchebags who couldn't get into UF/UM then. You'll go far in life kid.

Well, I forgot to apply to UF and I heard that the HIV/aids rate in Miami is about 2/3 so call me stupid/ paranoid but I don't want Aids. Who knows, I may still apply to UM.

I think Dade county has one of the highest rates of news AIDS patients in the country. As long as you keep you dick in your pants and use your brain you should be good. But you'd automatically turn into a drunk, high douchbag if you go there so you'll probably get it anyway.

UF is a state school just like UCF and the others mentioned. Anyone who can afford UCF can afford UF too. Ha just admit that you didn't get in.

I'm sure I've gone farther than you already. Oh and I like you refer to me as a kid. Funny.

As someone from Miami, no. Just don't stick your dick in anything that looks sleazier than Paris Hilton and you should be fine.

Anyway, UCF. It's where I'm going once I have a little extra money. For now I'm at FIU as a robotics major and it's kinda meh. We have a really good engineering program and our biomed engi department is huge, but UCF is NASA grant school, so that's your best bet in the state for an engineering program...

Bright Future's eh? Well, If I were you, I would go UCF. That's where I plan on going.

And to Warheart, how is UCF's Graphic Design course?

Florida, maybe. I don't know much about it. But that's not the case with UM. I'm a freshman here.

Yes it's an expensive school, but they're loaded so they have plenty of scholarship money to give away. I'm in the music program so I'm speaking mostly from my experience in that regard, but there's nobody in the music school who's a douchebag and the faculty is excellent. Everyone here is super nice and there are tons of killer players. Sure there are your typical bros around but that's going to be the case with any college. I don't have to deal with them. To put it simply, you're grossly generalizing the entire population and experience of a really good school.
