    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    FUN AND FANTASTIC PROGRAM

    I have loved the University of Florida ever since I was in 6th grade. I knew that if I got accepted that is where I would attend college. The atmosphere is everything to me, and I just got the best feeling when I toured the campus. I applied to about 7 colleges and got accepted into all of them, but UF was the best school out of the bunch. I did not get the best SAT score, 1170, so I think my grades and strong essay made up for it. I was involved in a lot of extracurricular activities that made my application strong as well. I think the most important part is the essay. It has to be unique and never seen before.


    Course Curriculum - 

    My opinion on the course curriculum would be that it is a little inconsistent. Some professors have been there for 22 years and know it all.

    IT'S GREAT TO BE A FLORIDA GATOR!

    It is the best college in my state for the program that I am getting my degree in. I have always wanted to go to UF and decided at a very early age that it would be my first pick school. I also knew there wouldn't be a chance I could go out of state.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think that the course curriculum is challenging yet very fun. I feel that by the time I receive my degree I will be fully prepared for the workforce. I have very much enjoyed all the classes that I have taken at the university.

    UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA'S COLLEGE REVIEW

    The distance to home was rather close, and I was still able to use my Bright Futures Scholarship money, as well as gain a local scholarship to the University! In addition, my close friend was planning on attending this college, so it helped finalize my decision.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum isn't difficult, as much as there is a heavy workload sometimes. The different forms that the matter is presented helps each individual student learn better, as some do in-person class, live lectures, recorded lectures, group assignments, individual research, etc.

    UF - PLENTY OF WORK, PLENTY OF PLAY

    My college has an amazing Health Science program, and from here it is possible to move into the University of Florida Medical School without changing towns again! Gainesville is also less metropolitan than most other Florida universities do which was appealing to me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The courses here offer a rigorous curriculum, but they strive to encourage students to be prepared for a career after college. Chemistry courses, in particular, have been grueling at the University of Florida.

    UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA REVIEW

    It was closer to home and it was also in-state, so my tuition isn't that expensive. I also wanted to gain the college experience rather than staying way too close to home to earn my degree. Plus, this is a very prestigious public university.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I believe the course curriculum is adequate. There have been changes here and there to the curriculum but it works overall to allow each student to succeed effectively and ultimately earn a degree. I do see that it is changed from time to time.
