The profile of UF on this website is absolutely ridiculous in comparison to the FSU profile on the site. You can tell that there's some pretty heavy bias going on, when the UF profile is 10x longer and more detailed than the FSU profile, and it says about 5 times that "UF is the top-dog in the state" or "UF is number 1 in the eyes of floridians" and all that. It sort of makes me angry that it gives such a skewed version of the two schools to outsiders who are trying to decide where to apply. The fact of the matter is that UF was better in the past, and then it plateaued, and FSU has continued to rise. It's very silly to say that UF or FSU is, at the moment, better than one another when they are ranked 51 and 52. When I read UF's profile on LSN, it sounds a lot like desperation to me. You are definitely entitled to your personal preferences, but seriously, do some research!!
