  • Jan-17-2016 I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    I was wondering is UF did delayed/deferred decision? Or do they only do accepted and denied?

    Not only am I getting an education at the best school in the state (and one of the best public schools in the country), but I have also been able to enjoy my time through the many opportunities the school offers. I have made many friends through the several organizations I am a part of, and have been able to find both a research opportunity and a part-time job on-campus. I knew from the moment I visited UF that I belonged here.

    Few state universities deserve to sport the University of _____ title like The University of Florida does. It's not just the hyped up SEC vibes that come from fall season, or the passing down of traditions from generation to generation in such established clubs and Greek chapters, but the culmination of all this in an area that takes no more than a few minutes to travel across via the excellent free bus system. There are flaws of course in the University, the meal plans, IUF1000 (what is the good life? a course that is mandatory for all incoming students to take) and bureaucratic inefficiency but with all that in mind, its harder to find a better college experience better that this.

    The most amazing part about UF is the pride and sense of community; you will never meet students more passionate about their university. The faculty are some of the best in the country and extremely knowledgeable about their subject areas, but also love to assist their students. Furthermore, we are one of the best schools in the country, but we also know how to have a great time including campus events, sporting events, and the activities around Gainesville.

    The sheer size of it can be overwhelming, but it also has plenty of clubs and student groups so that no one will be left out. The faculty are always willing to help and highly encourage students to pursue whatever drives their passions. It has a very welcoming presence and incorporates students from all backgrounds.

    This is a great university! The faculty really cares about their students and their success, but you also have to be willing to put in the necessary work. Also, plenty of fun stuff to do on and around campus!

    A lot of people from my high school attend UF. In what way can I make my application stand out from the crowd? I am looking to major in Environmental Science.
