    And that is a problem that awesome kids are going to other schools and kids who wanna go to UF with 4.0s are not accepted! People think this makes Florida a better school but that is bullchit. So UCF , USF , FSU , Bama , Auburn are getting kids that should be coming here .

    Yep. My daughter went to UCF. She's doing really well with her nursing degree from UCF.

    Yep, they may want to give more weight to locals and alumni

    Still amazing how we went toe to toe with Bama and then it all fell apart! DM completely lost interest in the job when didnt defeat Bama in the SECCG and didnt get any real NFL offers...he just checked out and didnt care.

    Why should alumni’s kids get “preference?” Some first generation college kid from a poor background should be disadvantaged relative to the child of college grads? I’m an alum and hell no.

    UCF and FSU will get great kids who couldn’t get into UF, for the same reason that UF has become so competitive - our state has a huge population. Further, if we wish to compete globally then we have to interact globally. This must include students from all over the world, especially for the best university in the state. Tough competition will make our kids/state better.

    Things that “stay the same” are really falling behind and dying.

    What state did he grow up in? What are his parents college affiliations? Those can be difficult to win against if he has some natural connection to one of those schools.

    With my 24/7 364 Gator hyping I can't imagine that my little guy wouldn't want to go to UF if it was feasible. But if circumstances led him somewhere else (even uga) I'd love him and support his decision. Just as I'm sure you plan to. Family is way more important than a college allegiance.

    He was raised in Florida and his parents aren't affiliated with any university.
