Schools
Not a huge list looking for some recommendations
Northeastern, Boston university, Emory

I would at UF and Fla State to your list. Do you want to be in a city? Schools in DC are typically great for PolySci (George Washington, American). How about NY? Fordham, Pace, Manhattan College

Yeah i feel definitely want to be in a more urban area. I don’t really care about the typical “college experience”.
