Should I attend USF?

    I have visited both FGCU and UF before USF and honestly, UF is in the middle of a tiny, crap town. The campus may be pretty and all, but the town outside of it is miserable. People who have come to visit their friends at USF during the school year (during breaks and such) have all told stories of how "UF wasn't worth it" for several reasons. I have friends who attend FGCU who want to transfer to USF because "a) their professors suck, b) their community and clubs suck, c) the town around it sucks, or d) the lack of IT and technology the school is equipped with in general."

    I don't know for sure to what extent a, b, or d are true because my time at FGCU was limited. I'm sure everyone can come up with at least one thing they dislike about their school, but when 15 - 30 people from each school have said the same, I'd be a bit more lenient to believe them.

    Okay, I never said FGCU was prestigious. It's just affordable for me. Anyhow, people may insist USF isn't prestigious depending on whose standards you're talking about. By no means am I dissing USF or any Florida schools, but it seems as though none of the schools are really respected in Florida out of state besides UF, UM, and New College of Florida. Luckily, I got selected for a scholarship to Cornell and I think that's the best choice for me. I am going to take advantage of all the benefits!
