I applied and was acceptedJun 28 2012Computer Science
I applied and was accepted. I recommend other students avoid this school at all costs, unless they happen to be a grad student. I have friends in the graduate program and they say it's okay.

When I was in HSFeb 13 2012Biology
When I was in HS. I always made honor roll, I took part in extra curricular activities in everything from Honor Society & Drug Awareness to SGA and Senior Class Council. I took dual enrollment classes at the community college and I started studying for my Sat's the fall of my Junior year, took them in June, applied to USF before my Senior Year of HS even started and got accepted by September of my Senior Year.

For any student, I would schedule a visit, see the school the campus, the city, talk to students there and talk to professors. AP classes are nice but if they are going to be a requirement for your major don't take them because they will only count as an elective. It's better to take dual enrollment. At the time USF didn't require an essay and an on campus interview was optional. I didn't do the essay but I definitely opted for the face to face interview because there are things the body language when combined with tone can do that being on the phone a lone or vial a letter simply can't.
SAT: 1480 Female
