    I'd be VERY surprised if you didn't get in. good luck on admission and on your IB/AP exams! btw, I was a National Hispanic Scholar, too...too bad UF stopped giving $ to NHSs a couple years ago. =(
    Oh, and if you do decide to come to UF, I hope that you continue participating in Model UN. It's SO much fun!
