To get in just do well in you high school. it used to be practically open admission. but now the school is getting tougher to get into. in a few years UWF will probably be in line with UNF in terms of size and scope.

Graduate High School lol? UWF's standards are slowly risingNov 08 2009History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Graduate High School lol? UWF's standards are slowly rising possibly since the University at some point will wish to stop expanding. Then again, at the rate it's going they probably don't care.

I was admitted in 2008 with a 2.67 GPA, ACT 20 (superscore 21) and a 970 on the SAT (before they included writing). It's hardly harder to get into than UNF.
ACT: 20 SAT: 970 Male

My gpa from HS was 2May 12 2009Political Science
My gpa from HS was 2.7 and my ACT was 21 and SAT was 980. I am sure it's getting more competitive since everyone is now trying to go to college and with people getting more denied from UCF, USF, FAU and FIU which were all doormat colleges, people will settle for here or UNF.

I would just do my best in HS. Even though if I did, i wouldn't have ended up at UWF. Just keep your options open.
ACT: 21 SAT: 980 Male
