    Wow, that makes me feel even better for getting in during the year where there was an all-time low for the percentage of people who go in.

    Just took ACT and SAT for first time--will take again. Which of these 2 scores is stronger--or about the same? 31 ACT, 1330/2020 SAT. Thanks.

    The ACT is slightly better (about a 1380) but both are good scores

    Wow, nice stats. I was a 4.6 ish GPA, 31 ACT, 2050 SAT. I always thought I was high above the averages, but I am not. This should be an excellent class.

    It feels good to be accepted! With that low acceptance rate.

    I know about 50 people (African-Americans) who got in with a 17 ACT score. If you are in the top 5% of your graduating class and you attend a Florida public high school, you are guaranteed admissions.

    @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?
  • Danielle2400Danielle2400 Registered User Posts: 228 Junior Member
    In response to MilliVanilli Post:

    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
    to 35-36%.

    "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.
  • jeromefultonjeromefulton Registered User Posts: 182 Junior Member
    No, it does not only apply to those 4 schools. It clearly stated in addition to the Alliance Program.... The Alliance Scholarship only applies to those 4 schools.

    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.
  • ufgator18ufgator18 Registered User Posts: 352 Member
    I'm in the Alliance Program and you have no idea what your talking about.

    It's not guaranteed admissions... that changed. It's just free Scholarship Money guaranteed if you get in.

    Thanks.
