Alper Sean - 03/02/2024

Located in Boca Raton at the South of Florida, Lynn University is a small school with its pro’s and con’s. The ability to reach professors quickly and effectively due to the small class sizes is an aspect that helps keep on track with schoolwork. The cafeteria contains various foods that are served at times of breakfast lunch and dinner which are tasty but can get repetitive after the first semester. A downside to Lynn is the lack of campus life as most people live on campus or are usually in their dorm rooms. I like my university for what it is and since it has helped me greatly in my academic and social life even thought it may have downsides to it. I think the university experience is different for every individual and it is what you make of it.

The campus tour gave me a great insight what the campus all about. Everything is at my fingertips to be able to learn and excell. I like the fact the classroom is small and I'm not just a number. Being able to have a one on one with my professor if I need to is a great deal. I hope i can make it my home.

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 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.

  20. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    Being at a private school in Boca Raton, it seems the sterotype is "everyone who goes to Lynn is rich" . I do not believe this stereotype is true, although there are students who are wealthy on campus there are also alot of students are at Lynn because of acedemic or sports scholarships. I do not think this reflects our campus accuratly because we are a 50{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} international campus which makes students more appriciative of eachothers differences.
