Default Any FSU or Gator alumni here?

Visiting schools with my middle son who would like to attend a FL school.


FSU was gorgeous. Any comments about those school from those who went there?

Checking out schools by Tampa next week.

Loving Florida except the panhandlers on every corner.

Is that normal down here?

People either pick FSU or UF because their parents went there or some particular major they want otherwise its a location thing. Tally has had its issues but now that Gillum is gone maybe they will get things on track. I never felt unsafe walking around.
Don't know much about Gville except driving by on the interstate.
If you head down toward Orlando UCF is doing good things and then in Tampa we have USF or UT if you have some money you just need to spend My nephew just got accepted at UCF on a scholarship.

are you shopping schools for a particular program or just Fl schools in general that may help with some answers from people who know way more than me

It's all about the U

Seriously there's UCF, USF, FIU, FAU along with Miami. Plenty to pick from.

Check out Florida Polytechnic University between Tampa and Orlando
It's a STEM school if that is his goal.
Florida Poly had an average incoming GPA of 3.9 and test scores of 1750 on the SAT and 25 on the ACT
