In regards to the University of Florida Honors College, do you think the following credentials would make it likely for me to get in?

Florida resident
IB (International Baccalaureate) program
Class Rank: Top 3.68%

Weighted GPA: 4.42
Unweighted GPA: 3.71
(Note that we are given courses above the typical rigor of high school students)

Math - 700
Reading - 790

I have the following extracurriculars:
-JSA - Junior States of America Debate Team (8th, 9th, 10th, 11th – State Cabinet)
-FBLA - Future Business Leaders of America (9th, 10th, 11th – Treasurer, 12th – VP of Membership)
-HOSA - Health Occupations Students of America (8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th –Parliamentarian)
-Varsity Tennis Team (10th, 11th)
-Writing a YA fantasy novel (which is almost ready for publication)
-Guitar Club - Founder/President; we personally teach members how to play guitar and also host performances throughout the year to raise money for non-profit organizations.
-Part of a selective Jazz Band

I have over 500 hours of service through events such as the following:
-Faces of Courage (cancer camp)
-Shriners "Children" Hospital
-Various free clinics
-Various non-profit organizations

I am also a fairly talented writer, so my essays should be good.

Thank you so much and have a great day!

    Your GPA and test scores are on the edge of the low end for the middle 50% of those accepted into the Honors Program for 2019. Those scores are:

    GPA 4.6-4.7
    SAT 1470-1540
    ACT 33-35

    Your GPA could go up or down after the UF recalculates your score. Not sure how that is managed but the UF score will, most likely, differ from what is on your transcripts. Your essays are an extremely important consideration with Honors so anything is possible. The acceptance rate into the program this year was just 16%, so the chance of being accepted for everyone is low.

    From what I've read the essays are by far the most important part of the application.
