This thread makes me cringe.
Loved it. glad someone else thought of lsd as soon as they saw it lol!
My opinion is that it's a sad truth about hidden agendas in this administration.
My questions is, does anyone actually go to Regent here on LSD?
I think it's against their student conduct code to fraternize with us heathens or anyone who might enlighten them in any way, shape, or form.
Ouch... what about UF vs. Florida Costal?
I wanna play!!!!! This is why I would choose UM if money weren't a factor:
1. Minutes away from one of the most famous, most fun, most beautiful (reference to the clear blue water) beaches in the world. Gainesville has, well, UF and farmland. Studying on the beach anyone?
2. Opportunities abound in Miami (what firms, law or otherwise would choose to be located in G-ville?)
3. UM 1L section sizes are smaller (50-60 vs UF's 100)
4. UM appears to have a tighter alum network than UF
5. In the interest of things to do and ways to become involved in the community, UM blows UF away. In Miami, there are all kinds of cultural happenings and in UF, well, maybe there are several keg parties to choose from on any given night...
6. G-Ville gets rather cold by Florida standards
7. UM has the Keys and Tampa nearby while UF has, uh Alabama?
8. In my opinion, some UF students are rather fanatical about being a Gator (Iím trying to put this politely) and that kind of rubs me the wrong way (read between the lines here if you like)
9. There are 2 kinds of people in Gainesville, students and elderly, retired people; where would YOU rather spend the next 3 years?
Culture tip for those who are moving to Miami for the first time: it is customary to kiss somebody of the opposite sex on the cheek hello, even if you have never met them and even in professional settings. I know a lot of people get wierded it out by this at first, but that's how it works in Miami. To some, not kissing hello is interpreted as being rude (as in "she doesn't look like she's nice", or "we wouldn't make good friends"). You'll get used to it. When I moved away from Miami when I was in high school, it was very difficult to adjust to not doing it!
That's not going to work with me. I have a "comfort zone" and I don't want people getting all up in it. I think that may be the latin influence. If they think I'm rude then I'll just let them think that. I really don't want herpes on my cheek
That's what everyone says when they first move to Miami. After a year in Miami, you won't even give it a second thought. It's an essential part of being a Miamian.
Is there really NO ONE joining me at American?
