edited May 2013 in Transfer Students
Post in here if you are applying as a transfer student to the University of Florida for the Spring of 2013.

Make sure to include:
-GPA (overall and/or per-professional)
-School or major you applied for
-whether or not you are accepted

I have 3.0 overall and my major of choice is mechanical engineering. Right now I am waiting but should be hearing back sometime soon I hope.

I wish you all good luck.

    Major: Biology
    GPA: unweighted: 3.0 at former school (FGCU) and 4.0 at current school (FIU)

    I just applied last week so my status still says:

    "Your application for admission to the University of Florida for the Spring 2013 term has been received. Please allow 2-4 weeks for an initial review of your application by the Admissions Office."

    Good luck everyone!

    can anybody tell me how to calculate weighted GPA? And will university of Florida consider this for your application?

    Major: Biochemistry
    GPA: 3.59 Overall, 4.0 pre-professional - Miami Dade College
    Applied to CLAS as a biochemistry major

    Extracurricular: Chemistry tutor at Miami Dade College, publication in progress for synthesized cellulose co-polymer, volunteer at Miami Children's Hospital. Also an employee there.

    I am awaiting admissions decision but will post my acceptance/rejection as soon as I hear back.

    I am worried about my overall GPA since the CLAS is a college that is packed with students. I feel like I am not competitive at all. We will see.

    Has anyone heard back from admissions yet?
  • EileenMEileenM Posts: 132Registered User Junior Member
    Mine just changed, it says it has been sent to my college for a final decision..I am in shock, as I have never made it this far in the application process..Not sure what that means..do I really have a chance?? If your app has been referred to your college is that a big deal? Or does everyone get referred, if they have a 2.0 or above..

    Is this thread dead...
  • DaoWeiDaoWei Posts: 10Registered User New Member
    Yeah, EileenM . That is what shows to me also.But at least it means you have completed your file. The website says,"After the Office of Admissions verifies that your application file is complete, the file is forwarded to the college and academic department for admission consideration and decision."
  • EileenMEileenM Posts: 132Registered User Junior Member
    Alrighty I suppose it's just a waiting game from here on out..
  • mitchellrod90mitchellrod90 Posts: 24Registered User New Member
    Has anyone heard back yet? I am still waiting :/
  • andrewfrost23andrewfrost23 Posts: 6Registered User New Member
    @DaoWei and summerchica

    This thread is about transferring to the University of Florida in the Spring (January) of 2013. Not UM or calculating GPA's.

    Please read the university's requirements for answers about your GPA.
  • EileenMEileenM Posts: 132Registered User Junior Member
    Still waiting too...I read on previous threads from last year that a lot of people didn't find out till September!
  • EileenMEileenM Posts: 132Registered User Junior Member
    Does anyone know if applying early to UF helps you at all?? (increases your chances)
