obviously, FSU and UF tuition is highly attractive (and better ranked than UM) but I would love to live in South Fla. UF has been dropping in ranks over the years, while FSU is slowly climbing... UF is still considered the best state school, but can anyone shed some light on the recent movements in usnews rankings? would FSU be better investment? additionally, I want to hear some opinions on UM. I heard its well established in south fla (good job prospects for people wanting to practice there) and UM has higher median starting salary than both FSU and UF... any thoughts?
FSU is def on of my top choices, but simply put, do u guys think UF is a better school? if i wanted to live in south fla, would miami be a better choice??
if you want to live in Miami, Miami likely WOULD be a better school. The school does very, very well in the region, and has a corporate bent if that's your thing. FL is very regionalized though. Miami does very well in Miami; Stetson does surprisingly well in the Tampa/St. Pete area; FSU places a lot of people in government jobs in Tallahassee and in other, smaller firms in the area; and UF does pretty consistently well throughout the state, from the panhandle to Orlando to SoFlo.
