FMHSkid-It may be your unweighted GPA that has set you back. While your weighted is good, they do look at that unweighted GPA, because it has significance. You have a pretty good class pick, and seem to be pushing yourself. However, I wouldn't expect them to look at the community service hours. I had 800 of them, and it really doesn't matter to them. It's the grades and test scores. Have you tried the ACT?
With a 3.7 GAP and a 1930 SAT, you should have had already been accepted. SUGGESTION---
If I were you, recontact admissions by phone, e-mail and regular snail mail. By utilizing all three different methods, this will ensure that you will have contact with three separate individuals rather than just one UCF student (working the phones) and inquire if everything has been properly submitted and properly reviewed.
1000's of community service hours doesn't really count-
UCF and ALL state supported schools are PRIMARILY looking for GPA & SAT / ACT scores. It is all a numbers game.

No one else has posted anything about scholarships, so if you're wondering how long it takes for the scholarships you're automatically entered for when you apply, I got a letter (no email about it) for the Pegasus scholarship a few days ago (it takes an extra week or so for me to get mail though), and I got my acceptance on September 20th. So probably about a month or so, unless they do a bunch of scholarships all at once or something. Just so you know. But it shows up on financial aid awards before that (I didn't know that, so I wasn't checking...) (:

Do I have any chance in getting accepted into UCF Summer 2013?
Katie, I attended summer term this past summer, and then moved on into fall. If I was being honest, I think EVERYONE should do summer term. Yes, you lose your summer, but you have SO MUCH FUN. Plus, you're much more prepared for fall term, then the fall students coming in. I already knew my way around campus, how to function, what to do and what not to do, had a solid GPA to start off fall, etc. The fall students I met this year told me they had wished they did summer term. While they were all at home, waiting for college to start, we got to start earlier, establish a group of friends. It's positives far out weight the negatives
I LOVED summer term!
My name is musiclover9 and I have a question about the status of my application-
What's my status ?
I've been waiting since August, why is it taking so long ?
When will I get an answer ?
Anything else I need to do to improve my chances ?
Thanks for your help, bye.
