I'm sure this has been beaten to death in another thread, but what percentage of students are able to maintain a 2.8?

2.8 is probably around bottom 25%, classes are curved between a 3.15-3.25 and median is usually a 3.2.

Grades

Per faculty policy, the mean grade for all course sections is 3.15-3.25, inclusive. For courses in which there are 25 or fewer students, there is no minimum and the maximum is 3.60.

Thanks for the info.

Have all the schollys been 2.8 stips this time around? I think I remember it was a 3.2 last cycle.

Yup... means we are on hold. But UF puts nearly everyone on hold except for the auto-admits and auto-rejects... So you aren't alone.

When I saw the date had changed from 11/14/2011 I got excited to only be disappointed when the status remained at FRNDR.... I wonder if someone else read our files and that is why the date changed.

I think that someone else has read your application and that's probably why the date changed. My didn't change throughout NDR until they made a decision. Whatever it means, it's movement!

Good luck everyone!

Not sure what it means, I was a November admit and my status only changed from NDR to Notice Issued without any date change on NDR. You could email an admissions person to ask, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt.

If I remember correctly, my status date was updated the day the letter was mailed. I think your status will change to decision sent by the end of the day

Does anyone know how they notify reject/waitlists/holds? Im assuming acceptances are snail mail and rejects are email, but im not positive.

UF seems to send everything via snail mail. You get a status checker message of letter in transit, but the status checker doesn't specify if the letter is an accept/reject.

Intersting... I have only been rejected from 1 school so far (Minnesota) and on their status checker, it said at the top that I "Unfortunately have not been chosen".

At the schools I have been accepted, it said at the top that I had been accepted, even though the "Status" was Decision rendered. I wonder if UF is the same way.

No, UF does not state the decision anywhere on the status checker, you have to wait for the actual letter.

Yupp, stinks, updated to today as well. Hopefully good news, but with so many of us getting this update, I'm a bit nervous...

Thanks UMiamiCane...

Jaysgirl, what did yours update to? Are you still FRNDR but the date updated? Or are you finally decision rendered...

Oops, sorry - still FR/NDR, but it updated from 1/23 to 2/15. When it popped up on my status checker app, I thought it was from that prospective students newsletter I got earlier. But looks like I'm in good company with y'all.

I would have lost my mind by now if Florida was my top choice.

A ton of decisions go out from now until late March IIRC, so I wouldn't fret.

FR-NDR as of 2/5/12. Applied 1/6/12. Going nuts as UF is my top pick and it's the only Florida school that hasn't decided.

You applied kind of late. Be patient. By the way accepted students, be prepared for another round of welcome emails from students. They are due soon.
