Business Transfer Questions/Chances

<p>Hey everyone, I am currently attending USF in Tampa, Florida. </p>

<p>I just completed my 3rd semester, starting my 4th in 2 weeks time. After that semester, I will have earned my AA degree in business. </p>

<p>I am looking to transfer to the UF college of business and I have a couple questions.</p>

<p>My “Stats”:
Overall GPA- 3.58
Core GPA- 3.06</p>

<p>Core Class grade breakdown:
4-Cred:Bus calc=A+. 3-cred: Bus Computer=A.Macro=B. Financial=C. Managerial=C</p>

<p>I still have to take 2 core classes which i am signed up for next semester: Stat & Professional writing. I should be able to obtain an 'A' in these courses, bumping up my core GPA. </p>

<h1>1) When is the best time to apply?</h1>

<h1>2) Should I/Can I apply for multiple semesters? (Summer ’12 & Fall ’12)</h1>

<h1>3) For my core classes I got: A+, A, B, C, C. Should I re-take one or both of the “c” accounting classes to try and increase my core GPA? On their website it says UF does not honor grade forgiveness?</h1>

<h1>4) It says on the UF website that if you meet the requirements, you are essentially “guaranteed” a spot.. That is if you have a 3.5 Core GPA – I do not have this, does this mean I will get denied since it is a ‘requirement’?</h1>

<h1>5) When you apply to UF as a transfer to a college, you must declare your specific major (accounting, finance, mngmt, etc.) Is there a specific part of business that is “easier” or less people apply to? (hopefully increasing my chances since less people are applying to that specific major)</h1>

<h1>6) What are my options of getting my 4 year degree from UF?</h1>

<p>Thank you very much for your time and patience, any and all helpful information is greatly appreciated. Have a happy New Year and good luck in all of your studies! - Jon</p>

<p>I go to USF, and it is the worst. From what I know, if you do not have the core 3.5 you will not be admitted. I tried the same thing.</p>

<p>to answer a few of your questions..</p>

<li><p>best time to apply, fall then spring then summer</p></li>
<li><p>can you apply for multiple semesters at once? no</p></li>

<p>3.your core grades are a bit low. uf will average all attempts on core classes so in order to improve you would need A's.</p>

<li><p>uf does not have to admit you. a state school does meaning if UF feels another state school would admit you (USF) then they may not let you in.</p></li>
<li><p>most business majors have to take the same core courses. so this makes them all about the same difficulty.</p></li>

<p>My advice to you might be to try applying to the online bsba program. It's what I'm in and probably easier to get into.</p>

<p>I'm in my second semester as a transfer and loving it.</p>
