Well wat state u a citzen for..if you are a citzen of georgi then ur chances r ok..like it would be a reach/match school..but outta state it would b a superrr REACH! but if u raise ur SAT's about 100+ points u'll be fine. As far a Uni of Fl..u have a good chance..i would say it waas a match school!

I think your chances are fair at best. For this years incoming freshman at U of F, 80% are in the top 10% of their HS class...1300 ave SATs...and a 4.0 weighted GPA. Ga Tech requirements are similar....perhaps slightly higher SATs, but a lesser percentage of top-10%ers. If you take a bunch of AP classes your senior year, that will help...U of F looks for that.

But...I think you should add a saftey school.

My school ranks based on cumulative wieghted numerical averages. mine is an 88. but my weighted gpa is 3.75. What doe you think my chances for ufl are. what safties and matches do you recommend. make sure they are in the south.

The Univ of Florida uses their own "weighting system"....only a 1/2 point extra for AP and Honors classes. So the 4.0 weighted average for incomming freshmen means you need a 3.5+ unweighted average with lots of AP and Honors classes. At this point, I'd say UF and GaTech are stretches for you, but who knows.

Sounds like you may be interested in engineering I'm guessing. UCF and USF have good programs. The computer science program at UCF is nationally recognized.
