You guys are idiots. That 1270 is most definitely his two-score. I could take a sh*t on the scantron and get better than a 1270 three-score.

Hi, I applied to attend summer of 2013. I am excited, but very nervous. Sadly, I only have a 2.9 GPA but my school has some sort of connection that lowers the expectations... I confident that I have a chance. Just keep praying.

2.9 GPA getting into UF? That seems like a long shot to me. I applied with a 4.2 weighted GPA (3.9 UW), all AP and honors courses all 4 years, tons of extrac's and volunteer hours, national honor society, national honor society of high school scholars, AND I am on the senior board with tons of other leadership positions outside of the school, and I'm STILL nervous that I won't get in because my test scores aren't the best. Not that UF is my #1 choice, but it would still be nice to get that acceptance letter.

What was your SAT score and everything else like? and what year did you get accepted?
Hearing that you got in with a 2.1 gives me hope, but how well did you do on everything else?
I think this person is kidding. I don't think they really got into UF with a 2.1 unweighted. That is equivalent to a 9 C's for each B. more than likely this person is joking.

Probably because a 1270 is a shit score. I don't consider myself academically inclined. I never had a GPA of more than 2.8 in high school (sometimes considerably worse) and I got a 1630 without studying at all... My gf (who goes to UF) however got a 2130 which is in actuallity a very good score so don't be complaining that your son didn't get in with a 1270 lol...
The 1270 is obviously his score for math and reading because they are not subject to a reader most people simply say their score as a combined math and reading. A 1270 is a very good SAT.

If I have a 4.1 weighted GPA (3.8 unweighted), 1750 combined SAT (1180 reading and math), 285 community service hours do I have a shot?

My son had a 2,000 SAT score, 400 hours of community service and a HPA of 4.7 and he did not get in. Good luck to you...

My son had a 1000 SAT score, a HPA of only 2.3 and no hours of community service, but he got in because he slept with the rector.

This is Pedo Bob, the boy rapist of Dorval, Canada, who molested my son in 2004. He posts from Dorval under my name--lately with a change in spelling--and under "annon." He's,a paedophile, currently stalking my son (now almost 21) at his school in Montreal, where Bob moved from Toronto exactly a year ago (Dorval is where Montreal's Trudeau Airport is located) to stalk him after my son identified him as his childhood rapist.

I don't have to. I just tell the truth, but you, the guilty paedophile perpetrator feel that you must continue to make shit up . But you're sordid boy rape tales give you away. Only my son's rapist would know all those details about him. And follow him eight years later to Montreal. And continue to stalk him.

Community hours over 220, works at a law firm doing their accounting, IT administrator distinguished honor, Highest Algebra average, but unfortunately a New Jersey Girl from a catholic school, and not on the track team, but career goal FBI/CIA fighting for against crime control in America. Hmm I will go to the number 2 College in the Nation at Urbana- Champaign for accounting that accepted me for my brain not my Jockness. Hang in there catholic girls.

Avoid Maltamon's naked university swim test is the best tip.

What does a typical day look like for a film student?

The typical day for a film school student starts the night before when trying to decide what time youíre going to set your alarm to.ďCall time is at 6am and itís going to take me thirty-minutes to get to the location. I want to get there early, but not so early that I regret not sleeping in a few more minutes. Normally, I take a 7 minute shower (yes, youíll start timing your showers), but, given itís going to be almost 5am, Iíll probably be drowsy and take 15.Ē Eventually, youíll decide on a time (I recommend getting the Sleep Cycle iPhone app; it works miracles), go to sleep, curse yourself awake at 4:30am, do your morning routine, which rarely includes breakfast, and make your way to work. Depending on the season, set will either be entirely too hot or mind-numbingly cold. Youíll carry heavy objects and witness your great friends become overwhelmingly obnoxious co-workers. The day will be stressful and it will feel long, but you will assure yourself this is worthwhile and, most of the time, it is. Then youíll get home, take the best shower of your life and do it all again. Unless, of course, you just wrapped. In that case, youíll still have equipment check-in, which is all of the above with none of the satisfaction.
