USF has a relatively high acceptance rate and itNov 05 2014Psychology
USF has a relatively high acceptance rate and it is pretty easy to get accepted. You're pretty much guaranteed to be accepted if you can get decent (C average or above) grades and write a mediocre paper about how you want to change the world for the better. Or you are extremely wealthy and can afford the 60K tuition then you are definitely going to be accepted even if you cannot speak/read/write English (as shown by the tens of LOADED (and I mean LOADED) International Students who parade around campus w/ their Prada bag or keys to their Maseratis, but have no clue about the ABCs). Don't worry too much about your SATs as it's really about the essay. Make sure to incorporate social justice into it, maybe volunteer at a soup kitchen, and as long as you didn't get straight Fs you will get in.
