I don't know if things have changed. S got into honors in 2007, and D got into honors in 2009. In both cases they received applications within 2-3 weeks of acceptance to UCF. Neither one stressed on their essays. The topic was broad enough that S used his UF application essay and D used her GaTech application essay. Each knew their stats were very good (for example, D 35 ACT/ 4.0 u.w) so they didn't stress over the essay. I have no idea if it's changed since then or not. I think both went with the idea their stats would carry them, so the only stressing that occurred was Mom making sure they got the application in quickly. Good luck! As you know, S loved Burnett, and I think being in UCF honors helped with his law application.


Submission of the application essay is strongly encouraged.

Jul 12, 2017 - Can anyone tell me anything about the freshmen application essay for UCF? I'll be applying for the Summer term. Is it two separate essays?

I submitted the application July 26, and my transcript was sent August 17. myUCF doesn't show that my transcript has been received yet, so hopefully that will be processed before their first round of admissions!
