Admission is selective, and admitted students typically exceed the minimum requirements.
Given those supplementary prompts, if your personal essay focuses on community service or work, be careful to present your story from two different perspectives.
Further, UF’s supplementary community service and work experience prompts pose a potential problem: Both the Common and Coalition Apps have an “Activities” section (it’s titled “Activities/Experiences” in the Coalition App), so you’ll need to make sure that the information is consistently presented in the Activities section and in your responses to these two supplementary prompts.
We require all first year applicants to submit at least one ACT and/or SAT test score by the application deadline to be considered for admission.
