If only it were that easy

You can't find out if credits transfer until you register as a student and pay to have your transcripts sent over. Even then most schools have a method to evaluate credits that don't automatically transfer, which Miami-Dade did not.

Great Mexican? Home style and simple, I like Las Fajitas (Boca). For fine dining Mexican, Eduardo De San Angel in Pompano. I found Eduardo De San Angel to be on par, if not better than, Topolobampo.

I've lived here for 2 years and love it! The only thing I don't like are the panhandlers at most major intersections.

don't you guys got a nice beach to swim in?
what about some good food?
affordable housing? (believe me, it's affordable, I live in LA lolz).

I can understand some of the negatives... like humidity & bugs.

but i was just curious to know why Miami and FL in general is hated on.
It's the people. Rude ppl. Period. A clash of cultures, refugees abusing the system, covert racism, etc. bla bla bla.

A lot of people in Miami just don't know how to drive, so my wife and I were those horn honkers

-Making a right hand turn - Must come to a complete stop/crawl to do so
-Getting on the on-ramp to one of the highways, but only do 15-20mph to the very end before finally speeding up, but then still do 10mph less than the speed limit
-While on the highway, if it begins to sprinkle then slow down to 20mph
-Approaching a round about with no traffic - must come to a complete stop for several minutes
-In the leftmost lane of 3 lanes of traffic and need to make an immediate right turn, no problem - who cares about those other cars
-Remain stopped at a red light even though we are in a turning lane and traffic is clear (A "No Turn on Red" sign was not present)

I've been to most paladares and state restaurants in Havana, and really, any Miami Cuban restaurant beats them to smitherins. Problems are wholesalers, restaurants are forced to steal from the state and rely on the black market. Ingredients sometimes disappear no matter how much you pay....and..in the case of state restaurants....employees steal foodstuffs to survive. Havana has the strangest restaurant, the best German restaurant in America at the Panorama Hotel, no longer exists, the best Spanish restaurant with the best paella in the continent, etc...good Chinese, good Cuban pizzas, but Cuban food is lacking.....after 50 years they don't even know what a frita is, that was the most common food.

The US should papmper their own cuisine - Cuban and Tex Mex are now American cuisine, as well as American Chinese, American Japanese, and forget about foreign and exotic restaurants that will be only be a pale reflection of those countries. For example, quite impossible to have a good Spanish restaurant, even potatoes are different, olive oils costs a fortune, no ingredients.
