Anyone can get into this University how else doNov 15 2011Business - Management and Administration
Anyone can get into this University how else do you think the student body has become 60,000+. I would advise anyone considering college in Florida or even out of state to look at other schools as the quality of the education will be better. Consider UCF as a last resort after all it is a University that when you complete the programs in 5 years (average for most students pursing high degrees) you'll have the quality of education that you could have gotten by buying all the books yourself and teaching yourself since that is what you will be doing at this school. Essentially you will be paying the school a ton to test you on yourself teaching ability. Oh and if you get anything less then a C average you can bet they will kick you out. Good Luck
Took IB in high school and got very good gradesSep 13 2011Biology
SAT: 1160 Female

If you have a relative that previously attended this university, you're a shoe-in. I had a better high school GPA & more extra-curricular activities than my friend, and she got in over me. I believe it had a lot to do with the fact that she has family that graduated from UCF.
SAT: 1000 Female

I basically just showed up with a pencil and they let me in. If you ever want to get a job after college go anywhere else.
SAT: 850 Male
Apply obviously, make your 2 essays genuine- the ppl reading your essays are professional filmmakers and can see through your bull, if you're a strong writer submit a few of your best pieces, if not this is not the time to start writing so use your potential talent and make a VERY short film to wow them.
No matter what don't overwhelm them with drawn out "inspirational" essays and cliche writing. This program is VERY selective, only 30 chosen out of hundreds of applicants so don't eff it up by not submitting your best work or thinking it will be cake to get in. And once again WRITE ESSAYS THAT SPEAK GENUINELY ABOUT YOU.

Feel free to contact me for more insights/advice on the film program at UCF
SAT: 1310 Female
