    ACT: Didn't take
    State Of Residence: FL
    Male / Female: Male
    Summer or Fall: Fall
    Class rank: Top 11%

    Comments: I think this is a reach for me because of my lackluster extracurriculars, but I'm still holding out hope that I am accepted. If I get into neither FSU nor UF, I will go to a CC to finish up my AA and matriculate up to a university. A hook I have for UF is that I am a legacy (mother graduated from there). I am also an URM (black), but I don't believe UF worries about any of that.

    It took mine a long time. I was just about to call to make sure they received everything and then the portal changed and showed they had received everything. I would call. With other schools, everytime I called, it updated the next day and I was accepted. I know UF doesn't communicate that until Feb.
