My daughter's stats:
UFWGPA: 3.89 (just went up to 4.36 after this semester but I guess they don't consider it)
ACT 28
Top 15% in her class (in a public high school ranked in top 6% in state of Florida)
Florida resident (obviously)
25 academic classes: 6 AP, 2 DE, 15 honors, 3 regular
Senior schedule is rigorous with 4 AP, 2 DE and 1 honors
300 service hours of local volunteerism and 4 international missions trips
sports, clubs, leadership, etc...lots of it
Essay was pretty great with a very touching story about an experience helping a dying woman in South America during a missions trip and how it changed her
only applied to UF and FSU (accepted)

She REALLY wants UF for pharmacy, the academic reputation AND to be a GATOR...counting the days until 2/10!

I know these opinions are not scientific but it's a lot of fun anyway!
