I was enrolled in the International Baccalaureate programMar 11 2005Journalism
I was enrolled in the International Baccalaureate program. UF loves taking IB students. AP stuff helps too.
I don't know why everyone seems to think youJan 05 2005Undecided
I don't know why everyone seems to think you just need a high SAT/ACT score and some "average SAT" score to get in. And no, it's not easier to get in summer b--so get that myth out of your head. You need to be well rounded. You need to write a killer essay, you need to be very well rounded with extracurricular activities with long committments, and several recommendations that will highlight you. Don't think, "Oh I've been a wrestling captain for four years..," some SGA member, and what not will get you in--cause it won't. Sorry to be harsh, but I'm tired of silly applicants thinking they can slide into UF without workign for it first.
ACT: 26 Male
It's competitive but pretty easy if you have theDec 29 2004PreMed and Medical
it's competitive but pretty easy if you have the right test scores/grades. like most big state schools, they dont care as much about extracurriculars and essays. i got a free ride with 33 ACT, 1490 sat's(800M, 690V)and a 3.7 gpa. i also sent em my sat 2's even thought they're not required cos i did really well on them(perfect in math, bio, chem, a 780 in physics and a 700 writing). had to go cos my parents arent that well off financially and didnt get a good enough financial aid package from my first choice private school.
ACT: 33 SAT: 1490 Male
GET GOOD HIGH SCHOOL GRADES! UF is very selectiveDec 10 2004Journalism
GET GOOD HIGH SCHOOL GRADES! UF is very selective. Make sure you get that SAT/ACT score up, along with a good GPA. And take some tough classes in high school, too.
SAT: 1240 Male
Perfect verbal SATAug 22 2004Philosophy
Perfect verbal SAT. Good high school GPA. They could care less about anything else, unless you're a minority (and that unfairly includes hispanics from Miami) or an exceptional athlete or, as often is the case, both.
ACT: 31 SAT: 1430 Male
