    Your extracurricular, APs and SAT scores are all good but your UF GPA is below average. Keep in mind that the most recently admitted class (2017) is the most academically achieving class in the history of the University of Florida.

    You're unweighted GPA is a little low, but considering your other academic qualifications (AP scores, SAT, etc.) and your outstanding ECs, you have a very good chance of being accepted, at least in my opinion.
