I had a 3Feb 28 2017Psychology
I had a 3.4 GPA from BC and this university accepts absolutely anyone who applies. They do a great job of presenting this facade of exclusivity and prestige but really this is just like Broward College or Palm Beach Community College. Please don't be fooled. If you are someone who is utilizing financial aid and have a decent GPA, shoot for FSU or UF and even UM (although more expensive as it's a private school)?. otherwise FAU is in the same lowly category as every other state university in Florida on down from UF and FSU.

Since I was under the impression that the collegeDec 03 2015Anthropology
Since I was under the impression that the college was a legitimate school with a challenging curriculum and high expectations, I worked very hard to get into the college. I took all of the necessary tests, took AP courses, wrote up a senior paper and project in high school, volunteered, and strove very hard to qualify for scholarships. I did everything right, except chose a good, solid school. I regret that to this day. Heed my warning. Do no attend a satellite or off site school of any university. Do not attend this one. Just cross it right off your list, and move on. Go to University of Miami, Florida State University, Saint Leo University, or University of Central Florida. Those are legitimate universities that will actually be worth something to your future employers.
