Chance? + Housing?

I'm a high school senior, 4.0 unweighted GPA, 30 ACT (35R, 31E, 28S, 28M), although with superscore I think it's 31. I'll either be valedictorian or salutatorian, and I took the ACT in September, and I'm pretty sure my Science and English went up. Trying really hard to work on my Math score.

If I do get accepted, what housing would be offered, and what is the best choice?
Thank you!!

    You'll be accepted with at least a minimum of $17,000 in scholarships.

    Housing isn't offered off of merit. You have to apply for housing.

    Best choice in housing? What're you looking for? There are different types that suite different people. The nicest in terms of design and newness is Juniper Poplar.

    Thank you guys! Fingers crossed (:
    For housing, I'd like a less social dorm. Maybe the set up where it's two people to a room, and they share a bathroom with an adjoining room. Obviously I'd love it to be cheap and also big, but whatever is the most practical. By the way, do you mean I have to apply for housing scholarships, or just housing in general?

    I'm dead serious. You're in. :) If you apply right now, you'd probably get accepted within a week. Essay not even necessary. Definitely look into the Honors College, 7 year medical program if you're interested in the medical field, and the Provost program. All of these are geared towards passionate, driven students with high scores.

    JP sounds like it would be the best for for you. They have two people to a room and an adjoining bathroom with a room of another two people. They're social halls but it's not like you have people running up and down outside your room 24/7.

    You have to apply for housing (as in reserve a spot to be placed into the dorm of your choice) separately. The details and instructions are on the USF Housing website. As far as housing scholarships, USF does not offer scholarships geared towards housing. You can use whatever shoelaces hips you receive towards housing, though. USF has a method where your charges are paid in the order of tuition, housing, then your meal plan. Therefore, in order to use your scholarships towards your housing, you must have enough funds to cover your tuition first.
