It's not as hard as one may think to get into UCFSep 24 2010Biology
It's not as hard as one may think to get into UCF. Yes, they are competitive, but all universities are. Overall, if you show that you've done at least a couple extracurriculars or getting involved in your community through volunteering, then you are a shoe in. You have to show that you can commit to doing something. Grades are important, but as long as you're well rounded, like I said, you'll get in.
SAT: 1150 Female
By the time I graduated high school, I graduatedJul 02 2010Political Science
By the time I graduated high school, I graduated within the top 5% of my class, had an unweighted GPA of 3.7 and a weighted GPA of 4.5. I took all honors classes, only one AP class, and spent my senior year dual-enrolled at the local community college for a total of 18 credit hours. I was told by my guidance counselor that I had a slim shot of getting in with my lack of AP courses, but needless to say, I did get in.

At first when I applied, I only had an 1100 for my SAT's. I got in with that score, but didn't receive any scholarships. I didn't respond to my acceptance, and retook my SAT's. Within a few days of getting my new score of a 1200, UCF sent me a letter offering a $5,300 scholarship.

My advice? Keep taking the SAT if you aren't happy with your scores. My first score was a 1040, and my last was a 1200. That makes the world of difference. Keep your GPA high, take challenging courses, and try your best on the SAT. Friends of mine that were active in school activities got far more generous scholarships so keep that in mind too!
SAT: 1200 Female

Pretty easy to get inMar 25 2010Unknown

ACT: 26 Female
I had a GMar 05 2010Computer Engineering
I had a G.E.D. with a 2.3 average from a Florida Community College. Automatic Acceptance!! Same Today!! I see all these H.S. students killing themselves with 3.8 average and one D and their rejected!!! Go to Community College no one will know the difference, save a bundle. When you go out for a job know one gives a crap anyway. Now if you have a degree from Rollins,Stetson,or Harvard they will take notice. That will bump you to the front of line and maybe even kiss your butt until they figure out you don't know anything. A degree from UCF is just like the football team.....Boring, Mediocre like the University of Phoenix or some Vo Tech. UCF is just a huge version of it's former self FTU(Florida Technological University...same thing different name.(but now they have a medical school)Go to UF,FSU,UM,, at least you will have some bragging rights in twenty years when the National Championships are on.
SAT: 540 Male
