<p>Hate to be negative, but not so hot.</p>

<p>no SAT?</p>

<p>27 ACT isnt flattering</p>

<p>Is that gpa your weighted? If it is then you don't have good chances. A kid from my school this year with a weighted gpa of 3.9 and a 1290 SAT. You pretty much need at least a 4.0 weighted to get in, or a 3.9 with a very high SAT/ACT. Good luck.</p>

<p>Try to boost your ACT score to a 29 or above. </p>

<p>It's all a matter of your extracurriculars, essay, and standardized test scores showing strongly in case of a GPA that's a little below UF standards. Not that this means anything for a future applicant, but I had a friend apply to UF for the 2010 fall semester with a 3.6 GPA (unweighted), all AP/Honors, a satisfactory ACT score (29), and lots of extracurriculars... she made it in and wasn't deferred to summer. I know 2 people who don't even compare to her stats and they made it in... UF just has an odd selection process.</p>

which is called Holistic Review. Admission officers have a responsibility to consider all factors when evaluating applications and to admit those applicants who are academically qualified and who have demonstrated a potential to contribute to and to be successful students at the UF.</p>

<p>Hey, I have the same question,

Haven't taken ACT Yet.</p>

<p>What are my chances of getting in?</p>

<p>If not, what can I do to get accepted?</p>

<p>UF focuses predominantly on GPA and test scores. The OP and cullen have both posted subpar scores and GPA's. So I would have to assume that their chances aren't favorable. </p>

<p>That said, I would apply anyway. You may get in with a compelling essay. If not, it's not the end of the world. I got in as a transfer student after going to community college, and I saved myself 20k in the mean time.</p>
