Which school is best for me?

These four schools are kind of what I'm stuck between deciding. I haven't decided to become a marine biologist or a science teacher. I want to change majors easily(I'll double major if I have to). Which gives more scholarships? I also want an open campus for LGBTQ+ students because I've feared something could happen. I have a 3.86 unweighted GPA and a 31 composite on my ACT.

UF is a terrific school for in-state students because between all the state programs and lower tuition, and higher acceptance rates, you have a good chance of getting in and of course, Florida is an ideal location for marine biology. I know it's a great school for sciences and research/connections, too. The other schools might have more prestige but not be worth the move and higher tuition, but you should absolutely apply to all and see what you get. UCLA is the most prestigious here, but as an out-of-state student, your costs could be $50-60k/yr without aid or scholarships.

I think that UCLA, UNC, and Florida are all equally great schools, with UCLA being slightly more prestigious than the other two. If you can afford the tuition at UCLA or got a good chunk of financial aid money, I would look there as your first option. Florida is also a great school, especially because the in-state tuition is very reasonable, but I think UCLA probably edges it out.

I would stay out of North Carolina and Florida if you're worried about safety for LGBTQ+.
