I grew up in South Florida (Pembroke Pines, which is about 10 min away from the NSU campus), and frankly, I'm getting really sick of how crowded it is down here. IMO, the bradenton area is a lot nicer and less congested. The only downside is that Bradenton isn't as culturally diverse as S. Fla, but the nearby Tampa is..
I also agree with cosmo on the PBL, definitely a big plus to me. And I also like how LECOM fl is a smaller school. I enjoyed the close-knit atmosphere there.
