Hi everyone. My senior son was not accepted to UF, his first choice school. He was accepted to FSU and is prepared to attend, but is saying he will transfer to UF as soon as he is eligible to. We are a Gator family, so attending FSU will take a little getting used to for all of us. We know FSU is a good school; however, we just don't think it's in his heart to try to assimilate once he's there.
So, assuming he sticks to his decision to transfer, my question is what is the better option for him, FSU or Santa Fe.
I know UF requires transfer students to have earned their AA degree, so it will be two years before he will be at UF. I also know his likely major, Marketing, is a very competitive major and that he may be admitted into the BA Business program and not the traditional BS in Business.
I know a large part of this answer is a personal choice that can only be answered by him, with our support. So what I am hoping to hear from the forum are stories from people who faced a similar situation. All advice and info will be greatly appreciated. I know in the big picture everything will work out, but right now we feel a little lost.
