<p>I see a trend ... is anyone allowed in your house wearing any Gator gear?</p>

<p>Son turned down Virginia Tech</p>

<p>My dad earned a graduate degree from UF. ;)</p>

<p>Scratch a 'Nole, you'll usually find some orange and blue. Scratch a Gator and usually you will find some garnet and gold.</p>

<p>Son: Turned down UF
Daughter: Turned down UF
We do have another son at UF, however. We're one of those mixed-up families :)</p>

<p>Turned down:
LSU, USF, UCF</p>

<p>I turned down UF, UM (was even offered a $100,000 scholarship), USF, FIU, and Seton Hall.</p>

<p>I turned down every other school I applied to (except FSU of course):</p>

<p>UF
Tulane ($88,000 scholarship)
UCF</p>

<p>UF, UM, etc. (no real reason to list the other minor Florida universities since they're not as hard to get into as these), UAlabama, Auburn (almost went here), LSU, and all the HBCs that had automatic scholarships (since I didn't apply to any).</p>

<p>.................</p>

<p>Daughter turned down University of Michigan honors program and Sarah Lawrence. She fell in love with FSU after visiting it (it wasn't even on her list to apply - we decided to visit after attending the UM accepted students day on our way down to Disney).</p>

<p>I turned down UCF and USF.</p>

<p>Turned down UCF, UNF, FGCU, Peace ($14,000/year scholarship), Jacksonville University ($13,300/year scholarship). Up until about a week before the decision date I was sure I was going to UCF. I'm very glad I chose FSU though, I can't wait to start in the Fall of 2011 :)</p>

<p>turned down ucf, unf, usf, auburn, and mississippi state. </p>

<p>best decision ever :)</p>
