    Cool, another IB Kid :)

    Also, you should recalculate your UF GPA. Not enough people put it because they think their Weighted GPA is what counts, but the recalculated one is really the only thing that matters in terms of GPA.

    I honestly think you should be fine. If you recalculated GPA is around 4.3-4.4 I think you'll probably get in.

    I like your odds Rohaa, I'm going to bet you get in. Your coursework looks strong, your grades/scores seem to be in line, and you have some nice strong ECs. Hopefully you have a strong essay, that counts for a lot too.

    @PupuLovesPickles Hey I know this is an old thread but i calculated my UF GPA and i think its a 4.1. Is that going to have a negative effect on my admissions chances?
  • Rohaa99Rohaa99 Registered User Posts: 14 New Member
    But I think I calculated wrong because by my method if I were to get all A's in the classes i took i would only have a 4.6

    @Rohaa99 A 4.1 will not bring you down too much, especially as an OOS student, imho.
