I literally applied to UF the night before theApr 14 2008English
I literally applied to UF the night before the deadline. I really had no intention on coming here so I just used essays from other college apps and lo and behold i got in. I am in the honors college here, and it really isn't all that great. Although, if you can score a 1400 or better on your SAT and you have a weighted 4.0 GPA you might as well do the honors college. they have the best dorms.

I got into the honors program hereNov 10 2007Language - French/Spanish/etc.
I got into the honors program here. My GPA was extremely high (I don't recall the number... I had one B and the rest were A- to A+ all four years of high school), and on the SAT I scored 740 Verbal, 740 Math, and 790 Writing, although I don't believe writing is being counted yet.

I took 9 AP classes and passed all the exams, and the rest of my classes were honors.

I had a couple long-term extracurriculars, but nothing too intense.

I was a National Merit Finalist, and UF recruits us.

If you make the requirements for the honors program or are a national merit finalist or scholar, you are pretty much guaranteed an acceptance to UF and the honors program.
SAT: 2270 Female
