    You look good with your act and extra curriculums.......my only concern would be your weighted gpa at a 3.6. How many academic courses have you had or will have completed come end of senior year. It seems like if you have 27,,,,it looks good to them if you look at the website it is something that they report on.

    I got my bright futures GPA today which is 3.75 - I think this is how UF recalculates - not sure. Also found out my volunteer hours are 241 instead of 175. I am a female Hispanic - also not sure if this is relevant.

    If religion classes count as core classes then I have 27 core classes. I heard religion classes count as history - are you aware of this?

    My cum GPA is 3.98.

    thanks for your feedback!

    Its not the same as your bright futures gpa. If you cant figure it out on your own,,,its quite east. aice, ap, ib or dual enrollment add 1. honors add .5 regular course is regular.

    so an a in an ap is 5 points an a in a regular course is 4 points and an a in an honors course is 4.5. dont use any course that isnt an academic course. then divide it by the number of courses.

    If you dont feel like doing it call the school and ask what it is they will tell you.

    My wGPA is 3.6 w/o the religion classes - strictly core classes as described in the FL website.

    Thanks for your input - Feb 10th can't come fast enough. heading up to Penn State in Feb to check it out! :)

    GPA is a bit low but your test scores are good. I think you have a fair shot.
