Any input / guess is appreciated. PACE / Honors / General Admissions

I’ve only had one C throughout all my years of high school, and Class Rank isn’t really considered at my school since I go to an art school in WPB with a lot of AP classes that don’t fall under “Core academics”. Thank you all so much, enjoy the rest of your evenings

What is your current class rank?

Sadly, my school doesn’t use class rank, also UF states that Class Rank isn’t something that is looked at, especially during the COVID year.

That is interesting. Do you happen to have a link to someone from UF saying class rank isn’t looked at this year?

I believe they stated it on their website and definitely stated it in one of the informational sessions that I attended in the fall. Admissions officers have also stated this to Guidance Counselors and College advisors at the beginning of this admissions cycle according to Reddit and my personal college advisor.

Either way, without class rank, do you think you could give me an idea of my admission chances based upon your knowledge.

You have a similar profile to my D, who also has the the two merit scholarships to UCF and UF, and the one lagging C (IB Calc) sophomore year. I have not found anything on the UF website or other sources where the one C will be an issue for residents. I do believe the focus is on GPA; which she has a 4.5 per their calculations, as well as scores, where she has a 1460.

There is another thread UF Decisions 2025 where rank has been a hot topic. Again I have found nothing online or in the virtual sessions that says UF uses that metric as well. However, others are not convinced. My daughter is also IB and is within the top 5% of her class. So I don’t think that’s an issue.

But from everything I have been reading, nothing seems to be a sure bet. Friday can’t some soon enough.

I fully expect you to come back and update this thread and say you were admitted to UF. Good luck!
