    You need to recalculate your weighted GPA per FSU standards.

    Under FSU standards, there is no way to get a 5.2 weighted GPA, and based off your unweighted, the highest yours could be is a 4.6- and that's unlikely, as it would require your entire high school schedule to have been AP/IB/DE/etc classes- no Honors, no regular classes, nothing.

    That said, your profile looks decent, if lacking quite a bit in the extra-curriculars. You should look at getting more service hours and a couple ECs if at all possible.
