    Whatever college you choose, make sure it is accredited. My college told me it was and when I went to transfer to Pasadena, they were not accepted nor even on the list. Check their reputation. Good luck. You are on your way to becoming something you actually want to be.

    I have attended Florida International University (in Miami) myself and enjoyed it; granted, I was an in-state student with in-state tuition and scholarship, so my demands in terms of service may have been more lenient than those of a student investing far more money.

    FIU has a great Political Science department and a strong Creative Writing department, in addition to some other broadly recognized specialties (Hospitality & Management); what are you interested in studying?

    Hmm...I believe that personal trainer courses and certification are typically handled by instititions outside of the typical college or university (there are other members on RJ far more knowledgable and far better qualified than myself who can inform you on this).

    FIU offers degrees (B.S. and M.S.) in Athletic Training through its College of Nursing and Health Sciences. The curriculum seems quite vigorous, which is probably a good thing.

    I recommend first getting a job in Florida and building up residency first if you intend to study there; in-state residents pay approximately 1/5 of what international students pay in tuition. Otherwise, I would strongly recommend that you look and apply for some nifty scholarships.

    In other aspects, FIU has a mixed student body in terms of commuter students (students that live off-campus) and on-campus students. There is public transit that is useful, though not optimal; when driving, FIU is conveniently located in comparison to one of the major highways (the 836). I have a lot that I can say about the ups and downs of FIU...I lived there for three years (and attended FIU for a total of five years)..

    Listings of the best colleges in the US. Take a look and go from there. Also there is a lot on google. Almost too much. Scroll down and through. I typed in simply NY Universities and got 274,000 hits. Start searching.

    I'm sure the OP already graduated given the age of this thread.
