I know nothing about UF, but I can tell you that your options for CME here are going to be pretty good, unless for some reason you're completely uninterested in Graphene, which is the common thread between a lot of the CM groups here. A lot of the groups here are also part of MRSEC, which is present throughout the country, so you might have additional opportunities to collaborate/network as a member of one of these labs. There's also an additional fellowship you might be applicable for (http://www.physics.gatech.edu/content/mrsec-fellowships) if you join one.
As far as life in Atlanta goes, it's a very diverse city so you shouldn't have any trouble finding your niche somewhere, so long as you have a car. As far as women goes: no, there aren't as many on campus, but you're right in the middle of a major city, not terribly far from two other major universities with much better ratios (GSU and Emory) and only about 10 miles away from an all-women's college (Agnes Scott). As long as you are capable of meeting people outside the immediate campus, then there are plenty of women around.
