The best thing about off-campus, is it is living at it's best. You can be who you are, do what you want to do, have no curfews, etc. The cost is a little high if you want good security and not a dump or a place that is overrun with drugs, but you get what you pay for. There are a lot of properties in the immediate vicinity of campus, and there will not be any shortage of opportunities to find housing. The cons are the FL housing laws. You have to pay an administrative fee of up to a couple hundred dollars, and are not guaranteed to get a place. The deposits are low, for average. The rents are much higher than mortgages, so you might actually be better buying your kid a house and paying a mortgage instead of rent. Then, they can learn a little responsibility while they are getting an education. If they stay around after, they won't have to worry about stability!

Financial Aid is amazing. They bend over backward to help out. The reason I didn't give it a higher rating is that I needed more money to cover my costs, and exhausted all options they had and still was stuck with thousands of dollars I could not find. I make no money, and what I do get, I need to pay to feed my family, etc. I do not have time right now to try to make extra thousands of dollars to pay tuition. Other than that, I recommend this school for the financial aid support you'll get. They really do try to find money growing on trees!

From what I have been told and to an extent of what I've seen the career prospects after graduation have a significantly positive outlook. Since aviation is a specialized industry and can be very dependent on who you know Embry-Riddle is a great way to meet new people and get in contact with aviation companies looking for talented individuals. Career services is a great resource for preparing yourself for entering the industry. The career service here will help you develop and improve your resumes, cover letters, negotiating skills, job search, or with getting through interviews. Since Embry-Riddle is relatively famous in the aviation industry, the university attracts a lot of high value companies for career/job fairs and seminars. There is usually a career fair every semester, the largest being during the fall semester where you'll have a major companies such as Boeing, Delta, Jet Blue, Northrop Grumman etc as well as smaller organizations like charter companies, fixed base operators, law enforcement, and flight schools. In the spring, semester has a government/non profit career fair which included a variety of law enforcement agencies from the local police to the major government agencies like the ATF, DEA, and a plethora of intelligence agencies. Sometimes there will be random seminars during the semesters where companies/organizations will come in meet students, their employee will tell them about their job, and perhaps recruit them on the spot. I have only gone to a few of these random company/organization seminars, the most interesting seminar I have attended was a group of corporate aviation companies and then there was the Central Intelligence Agency.
