I am in 12th grade in the state of Florida. I want to go to UF (University of Flordia). But I honestly do not think I even have a 1% chance of getting in. My SAT score is in the 900's and my GPA is a 3.5 weighted (it will go up by the end of the year).
To give some background; I was in dual enrollment at my high school (I was earning college credit while in high school). I had finished my first 2 semesters. Everything was great... until summer classes came around. Due to my PERT scores I skipped 3 math classes. These 3 math classes were Algebra 2, High school college math, and Pre-Cal. Sadly, I was put into college trigonometry during the summer. It was a 6 week advanced math class!!. Needless to say, I ended up with a F in the class and left the dual enrollment program. I had never failed before in my life!. Now I am in almost all honors and 3 extra classes online at FLVS. I am trying so hard to get my GPA up and I am trying so hard to study for the SAT and ACT. But I feel as though it is not enough.
My back up plan is to finish my "AA" at Santa Fe and than transfer to UF. Does that seem smart?
My essay for UF was about failure and how I over came it. Was that okay?. I discussed my grade (without actually stating what my grade was) and how it was made me grow and get my stuff together, etc. I dont know if that was a good plan to be honest.
