Hey guys, so I am a high school senior looking to attend UF in the fall. I sent an application in by the priority deadline of November 1, but during the process I chose to pay the admission fee by mail instead of by credit card online. Because of this, I was late in sending in the check. I was unaware that all materials had to be in by December 31 (including this check; everything else I had in) and unfortunately did not have my check in by that time. I realize that this means that UF will not be making my decision as a priority applicant now and I will be considered on a space available basis. I know that it is extremely competitive to get in when you don't meet the priority deadline. I understand all of this but UF is still my first choice school. I am just wondering if there's anybody that can tell me my chances of getting in now. I am an Asian male, my high school GPA is 3.72/4.19 (unwtd/wtd according to UF's GPA calculation style), I scored a 1450/2060 on my SAT (670 reading; 780 math; 610 writing; 8 on the essay if that matters). I have also logged in over 200 community service hours through places other than my school as well as some in my school. I have participated in varsity level sports since freshman year of high school. I have also taken as many AP, DE, AICE, etc. courses as possible as I know that this can show colleges my work ethics. Is there still a good (or at least existant) chance that UF will accept me?
Thanks in advance I really appreciate any responses.
Also I'm wondering, I've heard through some other posts from the CC community that it might be a possibility that if I cannot be accepted for the fall term I might be placed in the summer term. In my application, I put down fall as my term of choice to apply for. Is what I've heard true? Also, if it is true, would it make a difference? Meaning would it increase my chances of getting in? I really just want to be accepted, whatever term.
Thanks again for any responses, it's much appreciated.
