Yeah what would you people think would be a good spot for me and my friend?
I am curious.....moving to Florida and expecting to find a full scholarship? Very few Florida residents can get that.

Walking/biking is an option but can be a pain. At the tech firm where my husband worked some of the guys would bike in, but they had a shower and brought a change of clothes because they would be so sweaty upon arrival in the morning. My husband kept a 2nd shirt and deodorant in his office for when he had to go out on the roof or rounds to check stuff or escort an outside work group.

If other people can do it, so can I.

Whichevet one is full, however I have to get it. Never hadvthe best grades in high school and I pretty much screwed up at CC so I can't rely on those to get me in.

Well you're not getting any scholarship with those grades, bud. You're going to have to work your butt off and hold a job while going to school. Sorry to break the news so harshly. Life sucks.

Full scholarships are extremely hard to come by even for students who have a 3.0 average. I couldn't even get any scholarships with my 3.3 gpa. I would definitely not get your hopes up for getting a full ride, definitely would do what kiggy said and hold a job while at school. The majority of students all have jobs while going to school down here.

That's homework you need to do
You haven't done any research on it?

Nahs I'd assume that y'all would already know about it.
