VETERANS do NOT attend this school. Apparently they favor international students, i.e. non citizens over veterans. Lynn was offering continued online enrollment to international students only for certain circumstances. Well, I only had 6 classes left to complete my degree and I got denied with a valid reason. I had to move away from Boca Raton to look after a family member who is having surgery and STILL I was denied. This is very shameful and despicable of this school to take this action. It really says a lot of where our country is, and where it is headed. Fellow veterans, avoid this school at all costs. This is a 100% real review.

Lynn University has it all. If you want a school that is involved in helping you succeed Lynn is the place for you.

JESSICA

The campus is extremely safe with security at every entrance. Campus dining is open 24 hours so despite the time, you're available to chow down. The atmosphere on campus is relaxing, professors always available to help and get one connected to their personal references. All of our professors are knowledgeable in their field and are willing to share that knowledge with all of their students. Study rooms are available 24/7 which can be helpful when someone needs to concentrate hard, as well as the library has an extensive amount of seating. Finally, the iPads instead of books not only furthers the knowledge that the students have the opportunity to obtain, but it's quite light and portable compared to having 6 textbooks in a book bag everyday.

Sarah

If you are looking for an affordable school, pick another college or university. If you are looking for an academic challenge or an intellectual conversational group, choose another option. If you are looking for a casual education with easy-going professors, advanced technology (iPad Pros!), and want to stay in FL or meet an international community with a vibrant social life, this is a great option.

Lynn University FAQS

  1. What is the Acceptance Rate at Lynn University?

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Lynn University is 81%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would tell myself to enjoy life. Do not rush into getting married at 19 and have the true college experience. Making school a priority over dating can help you in being much smarter and more knowledgeable for your career, which you could achieve much sooner (I took 5 years off of school). Secondly, I would say to choose your friends more wisely and know that you are better than who you let yourself be around. Always take the high road and not to let others make your choices for you, take your own path and run with it. Lastly, I would say to not work so much and definitely make school a higher priority.
