I'm a grad student at this university. UF has constantly been high in the rankings in the "best value for you money" section of the US News rankings, and for a reason. The quality of the education is really good, and so are the professors. The tuition is unbelievable cheap, less than $3,000 a year for an undergrad if you are a Florida resident. The GPA average of the incoming freshmen classes are around 3.9, so the students are also very smart. If I didn't give it five stars, it's because sometimes the classes are really crowded, and the resources for certain areas (specially the humanities), are not that good. But otherwise, it's unbeatable.
