This is only a general statement, but I think in last year's thread, they didn't budget on scholarships. I think they have some general formula that they apply. That's not to say don't go for it, but just don't "expect" it.
And I just got into FSU but have had my heart set on Miami for the past few months. Now that I've started looking at housing and other things in Miami I'm beginning to see how expensive it could be, this is getting tough..
Totally, I didn't get into Miami but I certainly was just down there checking out various schools and rent would be (on average) $1200 as a single. If you wanted to live really close to the school, at least. Obviously, you could get a double but sometimes you have to debate the double vs. your own space idea.
I'm out of state, but the one thing I do know about Florida since I've been everywhere from Tallahassee (applied for for a Masters program and got in) to Fort Myers on over to Fort Lauderdale and Jacksonville, the entire state of Florida has different regions. Tallahassee is different than Jacksonville. Clearwater is different than Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale is different from Miami. And you really can't compare the beaches on the Gulf to the Atlantic Coast.
Sand-wise or color of water.
There was one complex that I looked at in the Tallahassee area that was around $1,000 too but it was located like 20 mins or so away. It had a more adult feel to it too. Students, but quiet.
