I applied to University of Florida on a whimSep 15 2008Biology
I applied to University of Florida on a whim. My father asked me to do the application just to see if I could get in because he really really liked the idea of a free education. I had sent in my scores from the first time I took the SAT and I wrote the essay for application an hour before it was due (I love online applications.) I read over it recently and I had like three grammatical errors and frankly it was horrible. But I got in... I'm pretty sure it had a lot to do with my high SAT score which got me into the Honors college at UF...I don't think my essay helped me out at all... and my high school extracurriculars had gone from a four sport athlete in my first two years to a zero sport athlete as a senior due to injuries. (something I didn't specify in my application so I just looked like a total slacker)
I had a pretty decent GPA, a high SAT score, zero sports, zero reported community service hours, zero outstanding resume components so I'm pretty sure the only reason I got in was that my grades and SAT scores would raise their university statistics (another example of how this university doesn't care about the individual student but rather just about the student as a statistic.)
