On thing to mention is that every person that has an AA degree will automatically be accepted to UF as a junior.......go to community college or another 4 yr university, get an AA and transfer to UF if that is the ultimate goal. Getting accepted to the engineering program once the school transfers you in as an AA degree holder may be another story. I think something like just over 20,000 people applied to UF for this years incoming fall freshman class and they only accepted 1600......no shame in not getting accepted, many highly qualified people got turned away.
I believe having an AA only guarantees you acceptance to a Florida University, not necessarily UF. My daughter went through all this when applying a couple of years ago.
