For those that are interested the UF Office of Admissions has released the following information about admissions for 2011 for the Class of 2015 as published in the Independent Florida Alligator newspaper:
Total number of applicants: 29,269
Total number admitted: 11,423
Percent admitted: 38% (an all-time record low)
Mean GPA of admittted students: 4.30
Mean SAT score of admitted students: 1963
Mean ACT Composite score of admitted students: 30
@Danielle2400 Can you give the link? I would like to check it out (unless that was all of the information given). Anyone know where we can see the statistics of where the incoming students are from etc. or is that like illegal information?
I provided all of thge reported information given to the UF school newspaper, The Independent Florida Alligator by the UF Admission Office. If you go to the Independent Florida Alligator Newspaper website and search for UF Admission statistics 2011 you will find the article. As to the post above yours that information is not accurate. There are minimum SAT and ACT scores to even be considered for admission and a 17 Composite ACT is well below the minimum. Also a top 5% class standing is no guarantee as a number of top 5% students were rejected primarily with below average ACT or SAT scores. If this trend continues as it has for the last three years, admission applications for next year may approach 33,000 which would if the class size stays constant reduce the admission rate
"In addition to the Alliance program, the University of Florida will begin a new partnership with all high schools in Florida to assist Gov. Jeb Bush’s efforts to strengthen public education in the state of Florida. The new program, effective this year, guarantees admission to the top 5 percent of the graduating seniors in all public high schools in the state. These students will be expected to complete the application process and must have completed the necessary core courses satisfactorily. In most cases, these graduating seniors will have done so and will therefore, be guaranteed admissions to the University of Florida."
yes, but from 2002, jeb Bush isn't even the gov. anymore. I know there is a state program where people in the top 5 or 10% are guaranteed admission to atleast 1 university in the state, even if it may not be one of their top choices. maybe this is the end result of what they were trying to start then.
also, if you kept reading the article, you would see that that specific program only applied to 4 high schools.
