Hybrid SAT/ACT Practice Exam at CHS


Information from Florida State University

Dear Counselor,

More than 45,000 students submitted an application to Florida State University by the November 1 deadline. This is a 13% increase from last year. Due to the large number of applications received, we ask for your patience as we carefully gather all the information submitted for each applicant. In an effort to reach as many students as possible who may have questions about their application, our office put together a list of answers to the most ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ that we have received over the last couple of days. We posted this on our website and shared via social media. We wanted to share this information with you since we know so many of the students and parents will turn to you first for assistance and reassurance. Thank you for your patience.

Warm regards,

Hege Ferguson
Director
