  • JrongoJrongo Registered User Posts: 25 New Member
    @sparksedo I submitted my application to USF on September 6, and I had all my required documents in by around the 23rd ish. I was accepted 2 and a half weeks later. I JUST received the acceptance packet today in the mail and was offered a $8,000 scholarship.

    @Robby2306 I recommend retaking your SAT/ACT to improve your scores....but other then that I would say you have a decent shot for Summer term.

    My SAT/ACT was 1890/25 and my recalculated GPA was a 4.64. I was an owner of a cooking club in my school, had lots of extracurriculars, and had over 180 hours of community service.
