    The lowest I've heard of this year was around 3.0 unweighted but they count weighted grades as well and a 1700 out of 2400 on the SAT. I called them and they said they require at least a 1700 for the SAT but I don't know about the unweighted/weighted GPA.

    Accepted with a 1090/1670, GPA 3.9w 3.5 uw good ECs

    They didn't accept me until my total SAT score was 1210 / 1720 , my UW at the time was a 3.155 and my weighted was a 5.088( lots of dual enrollment /AP). I submitted the form in October and got an acceptance thing in January. I didn't submit any thing with extra curriculum activities.

    FIU should be weeding out more students but I guess they have a quota to fill or something because they want to keep whatever students that are still there as well.

    You're right, Ecs not requested in application but I sent separately.

    Good luck 1212

    FIU/FAU doesn't turn down anybody. And if they do, you shouldn't be in college to be fair.

    FIU accepts everybody
  • del_psidel_psi Posts: 229Registered User Junior Member
    MDC accepts everybody not FIU. The last time I checked the acceptance rate was reported to be in the high 30's in terms of %.
  • jasoninpinesjasoninpines Posts: 201Registered User Junior Member
    30%? Yeah right...

    Florida International University - Best Colleges - Education - US News and World Report
    Fall 2007 Acceptance rate: 35.9 %
    What does that acceptance rate refer to?

    College acceptance rates: How many get in? - USATODAY.com

    I think I understand , there fall acceptance rate is around 30-something percent but not their total admitted.
    It was like 44.7% for 2007-2008

    FIU has a 32.7% admissions rate, This makes FIU the most selective university in Florida http://tinyurl.com/c2pzxr

    UF had a 41% admissions rate

    >> FIU/FAU doesn't turn down anybody. And if they do, you shouldn't be in college to be fair.

    FAU admits ~45% of the people who apply. We've rejected over 7000 people so far for Fall '09/'10. With the new Rec Center, cafeteria, dorms and surge in Greek Life, FAU is becoming a more popular choice and thus a more selective university.

    Although the percentage of those accepted is lower than say the percentage of UF, it doesn't mean much especially since the quality of their applicants differ incredibly. People who apply to UF as opposed to FIU are very different. Usually with much higher GPA's, etc. Plus, a reason why they might reject many more people is because they get so many applicants with such low qualifications.
  • del_psidel_psi Posts: 229Registered User Junior Member
    Well I guess the average student going to UF would be more serious than the average student going to FIU. Most people with low qualifications go to MDC (100% acceptance rate last time I checked) instead of FIU and end up transferring with an AA. UF tends to attract better students because it's more well known , but FIU will still get some good students. I only applied to FIU and I have decent qualifications ( 5.549 weighted GPA , 60-something college credits after this semester and a 28 on the ACT).

    In my school everybody and their mother made it, its not a bad university though, i know a lot of people that did not make it to UF so they just went to FIU, they are top 10%.
