    In What Cases Is An SAT Mandatory? I live in VA currently and take my classes online, Im a senior now. I want to go to college in Florida and I am debating on whether or not to take an SAT test. I am looking at going to Gulf Coast State college for Marine Biology, and transferring to a 4-year university (FSU or UF maybe). Since Gulf Cost State does not require or consider SAT scores in their applications, and If, after 2 years I were to transfer to a 4 year university, would I have to have an SAT or ACT score to get into the 4 year university, even if I got a certificate or associates degree from Gulf Coast and got good grades?

    I have probably a 3.5-3.7 GPA not weighted in highschool and will graduate with plenty of credits.

    • Curator says:

      Yes, most likely. If you are still in your first two years, about 70% of Universities want an SAT or ACT. Universities do not recognize Associates degrees or Certificates – only the courses that your took – and they determine which of the courses you took will be transferrable for a 4-year degree. As community college courses are easier than first and second year University courses, this is why it is often still required. If you take the SAT or ACT in your second year of College, though, then you will likely score higher than you would if you were take it now.

    • Curator says:

      It all depends on what you consider great. University of Central Florida is a very big school in Orlando. Search it up and see if you’d like it (: But I’ve gotten positive feedback from there. Other schools you might be interested in that aren’t in Orlando are University of Florida, University of North Florida, Florida Gulf Coast University, and Florida State University. Good luck!

    Can I Get Into Medical School Or Should I Transfer? I am currently a freshman at Florida Gulf Coast University, which is a relatively small and new school. Although I carry a 4.0 GPA and I am involved in volunteering, would I be able to get into a prestigious medical school? Is it absolutely necessary to transfer to a larger school, say the University of Florida? I am trying to save up money by staying at this school but is it worth the risk? Please answer with personal experiences, or just give some advice. I would appreciate it.

    • Curator says:

      1. Google Student Doctor Network
      2. Click SDN Link
      3. Find Forums
      4. Go to Premedical Allopathic Forums
      5. Read the stickies at the top

      Basically you will learn that there are four things you need to get to a good medical school:

      1. High GPA
      2. High !!!!!!! MCAT
      3. Clinical Experience
      4. Research

      The only reason you may want to transfer is if your research opportunities are severely limited by your being at a small school. Even then, there are a plethora of SURPs (summer undergraduate research programs) to apply to. Many of which are at prestigious institutions, themselves.

    Is Ft. Myers Florida A Good Place To Live For A College Student? Im thinking of attending Florida Gulf Coast University and iI would like to know if I should. I have never been there before but they have the OT program I need. Is it a good place for a college student? Good atmosphere with nightclubs and other good college atttactions? I dont want to be bored where I’m living!

    Thank you!!!

    • Curator says:

      Ft. Myers is not big and is certainly not the most exciting place to live for a college student, but it is a good place. On the plus side, Ft. Myers Beach is just a few miles from Ft. Myers, and that’s where the clubs and the action is at.

    Advice For College/My Future? I am currently in my second semester of my freshman year at a community college. I am majoring in Sports Management. I am in a transfer program to the Isenberg School of Management at UMass for my Junior/Senior year. It has long been my dream to work in California. This summer I will be doing a two month sports internship in Chicago. I am considering transfering to a less prestigious school, like the University of San Fransisco, or Florida Gulf Coast University, I really don’t think I can stand the icy Mass weather for 2 extra years! I am trying to figure out if it would be in my best interest to stick with the best school, or just get out to a different part of the country where I would rather be and network from there. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    Side Note: I plan on interning with the San Diego Chargers my Junior/Senior year, and spending that summer in California.

    • Curator says:

      You are usually better off at the better school, unless you really can create a strong network that will get you a job when you graduate.

      My wife grew up in San Diego and went to college in Iowa… she hated the cold too!!!

    Confusing College Question!? Hi, I am currently pursuing a degree in Sports Management/Administration, and through a transfer program have guaranteed placement into the Isenberg School of Management at UMass. However, I would like to go far away for school and am looking into Florida Gulf Coast and the University of San Francisco. My question for those who have graduated with a degree in Sports Management is a little complicated and multi-faceted. I am currently in my second semester, I would be transferring in my Junior year, and then probably going to graduate school afterwards. Do you feel that I should make my decision solely on the fact that Isenberg is the most prestigious of the schools? Or is there still good networking opportunities in some of the other schools? Also how important is internship opportunities versus quality of education? Thank you for taking the time!

    • Curator says:

      There are many many other networking oppertunities out there. granted yes when one opens your portfolio they see the grand school, but always remember this… most people who make it big in the sporting industries came from lil old nothing. and my friend who works in sports medicine, he graduated solely from the navy! and now hes working an awsome job and he has many accomplishments!
