Stetson has offered me a full tuition scholarship with a living stipend with a top 40% requirement.
UF has offered me 8K a year with a 3.2 GPA requirement (in-state)
I am aware that a specific class rank is not guaranteed at any school, but have heard that very few students at Stetson are ever even in jeopardy of losing this scholarship and given the expected rising cost of tuition at UF for the next three years, would not mind the difference of debt from Stetson if I were to lose the scholarship. I love the Tampa Bay area and love the Stetson campus and feel.

Would it be a bad decision for me to chose Stetson over UF?

How much is the living stipend from Stetson? 

With the 8K from UF, you're basically looking at about $10K in tuition, right? 

What if you're not at the top 40% at Stetson?  You'll be paying $45K a year (tuition plus living expenses) and you'll end up with a Stetson degree.  What if you don't have 3.2 at UF?  You'll still left with in-state tuition AND a UF degree. 

If I were you, I'll stick with UF.  By the way, UF is not that far from Tampa and it dominates the Tampa market, just like Stetson, if not more, and any other market in Florida, which cannot be said about Stetson.

I agree.  UF's most likely the OP's best choice.

Hey, where have you been?  How are things going?  Are you now a 2L or 3L?   If 2L, anything for this summer?

Everything's cool, I've just been out and about leading the hustla lifestyle as of late. I'm still a 2L for another month. I have a little something lined up for summer, but nothing spectacular at the moment, probably just doing part time work and part time school.

And how are things in your neck of the woods?
