I am thinking about moving to FL in a couple of weeks. I have kind of got it narrowed down to three schools. I am planning on taking some bio courses and Organic Chemistry. The schools/towns are:

Indian River State College- Ft. Pierce
University of North FL- Jacksonville
Tallahassee Community College- Tallahassee

I was wondering if anyone recommends any of these schools or towns. I prefer smaller towns and I know Jacksonville and Tallahassee are large so I am leaning toward Ft Pierce. I also was wondering if anyone knows which area gets the most bad storms? If anyone can recommend any of the colleges I would also appreciate it. I am trying to find an easier school to attend... don't get me wrong... I am willing to work hard and I have a BA and MS degree already. I just wanted to take required courses for med school and not kill my GPA. Anyway, advice would be greatly appreciated because I have to move in the next week or two to make the start of fall courses. Thanks everyone!!

I'd recommend UNF in Jacksonville. It's a good school (yet not super challenging) and located on the south side of the city (a good area) away from most of the development. You can find a wide variety of places to live just to the south in Baymeadows which is the southernmost neighborhood in the metro area. Jacksonville is also the least prone to tropical storm or hurricane strikes of the three you mention. Even Tallahassee is somewhat prone despite being inland as it's in the Panhandle which is a high risk area.

Santa Fe College fits the smaller town. Considering many kids go there with the plan to get into UF it probably is tougher than most FL colleges.
