    What term did you apply for?

    Have you taken an advanced classes? If so, how many?

    Have you taken foregon language classes?

    What is the highest math you've reached?

    So far it looks like you'll be accepted conditionally for summer term.
  • Robby2306Robby2306 Registered User Posts: 113 Junior Member
    I applied for the summer 2014 term!

    I have 2-3 succes factors

    I'd say its a high match/low reach.
  • Robby2306Robby2306 Registered User Posts: 113 Junior Member
    They have had my transcripts and test scores since september 5th 2013 so its now been alsmot 2 months and im getting worried! I was deferred from ucf, and i listed the schos i was aceepted, i just hope i get in!

    This quarter i got overall a 3.75 gpa and 3.9 hpa, should i send in a new transcript with those grades on it!?

    Thanks for the reply !
  • Niquii77Niquii77 Registered User Posts: 10,104 Senior Member
    With only 2-3 success factors, they should accept you for summer term. It may or not be conditional.

    What's a hpa?
  • Robby2306Robby2306 Registered User Posts: 113 Junior Member
    it is an honors grade point average!
  • Niquii77Niquii77 Registered User Posts: 10,104 Senior Member
    Ok. Why you need to do I recalculate your GPA to how USF does it. Use that GPA with the chart. Your chances for acceptance might just go up because your 3.4 is unweighted right?
  • Robby2306Robby2306 Registered User Posts: 113 Junior Member
    yes the 3.4 is unweighted and the 3.6 is weighted its out of a 4.5 instead... how do i re calculate to how usf does it?

    i saw their matrix chart and i was using my 1590 and 3.6 ethier way im in the light blue which indicates possible admission for summer

    ive just heard mixed things! people seem to be getting deffered with higher scores!!

    and some getting in with way lower!

    thanks !
  • Niquii77Niquii77 Registered User Posts: 10,104 Senior Member
    I just realized my post don't make sense! So many typos! :p

    I meant: "What you need to do is recalculate your GPA to how USF does it."

    USF calculates GPA by letter grades.
    A 90-100 4 points
    B 80-89 3 points
    C 70-79 2 points
    D 60-69 1 point
    F 59 or lower 0 points

    Add 1 point to the grades value if it is an AP/IB/AICE course.
    Add half a point to the grade's value if it is an honors/pre-AP/IB/AICE course.

    Add up your number and divide by the number of grades.

    That's good that you've studied the chart. USF factors in more than just in applicant's scores in their decision. They still see what you've participated in, how you've demonstrated leadership skills and how you've volunteered! I think you have a chance.
  • Robby2306Robby2306 Registered User Posts: 113 Junior Member
    Ok! Thank!

    I just recieved my first quarter grades and got:

    Accounting A
    English honors A
    Marine science A
    Finance A
    Econonmics B
    Pre cal honors : on flvs not finished

    So i have about a 3.8 gpa and 4.1 hpa

    Should i send in a new transcript that inudes these grades? Will it help out!

    Paid the application fee and submitted everything except SAT scores. I did the SAT in Oct, received a 1600 (m+w+c) I could of easily gotten around (1800) but due to test day mishaps i ended up with a horrid 1600 (not happening again). Is a December SAT risky? My application has already been submitted though, its just the marks missing.

    My goal for December is 2000+

    Just got accepted with a 3.8/29 ACT, also got in to Honors College and a $12k per year scholarship. I think you'll get in, it took them a long time to accept me (probably because they award scholarships with acceptance).
  • Niquii77Niquii77 Registered User Posts: 10,104 Senior Member
    It just depends on when they get your application in relation to where they are in the application rounds.

    All in good time, young grasshopper. All in good time.
