I applied to almost every school in Florida (except for UF or UM) including private Universities and got accepted. I wasn't prepared for that, because I thought my options would be narrowed down based on not being accepted to some. My dilemma now is deciding where to go.
Basically, because I have no interest in Central Florida, I am trying to decide between FSU and any of the South Florida schools like USF, FIU, St Thomas, (already ruled out University of Tampa). My concern is as much for the attitudes and overall academic environment as it is for the reputation of the school and it's programs as far as performance. So what I am looking for feedback about are things like are the professors helpful or do they act like they are doing you a huge favor graciously allowing you into their school and allowing you into their classroom? Do you feel safe on campus or is there an excessive atmosphere of racism and social bullying? Things like that. Stats and exam pass rates, are things I can easily research on my own. But people's individual experiences with whether or not they are treated with respect at their school? Treated like adults? Treated like the valued customers that they are while they are paying thousands of dollars for an education? That is what I want to know.
