My UG is UF and you can bash all you want, but if you take UF seriously it opens many more doors than FSU or any other option in Florida. Especially outside the top 20%.
They made Gator Nation a big pull because fellow alum look out for the alma mater and would rather hire UF grads than FSU. It's a REAL thing. Just keep that in mind.
As far as the pompous feeling some felt, it was only joking. UF and FSU have a huge rivalry. Outside of football especially. UF didn't focus on the educational aspect because they know they have a good faculty as well as everyone else in Florida. You'll get the same education no matter what. What you should be looking at is the accessibility of the staff and the willingness to connect you to alumni, which I definitely saw yesterday.
You're buying the degree, opportunity, connections, employment opportunity and alumni all of which UF has to offer.
Again, I'm not sure anyone is bashing here. As I've said three times, I actually liked UF. Just airing my concerns and thoughts. I thought that's what a forum was.
In my eyes you're good, Cricket. I just think you and Sailor got a little carried away. Sailor doesn't appear to have ever been considering UF and Scalia is an obvious UM troll with a mean inferiority complex.
Lol. I decided on UF this morning. Just bought about $60 worth of gear from their bookstore online. So funny.
