Applicants were evaluated on GPA, well-rounded involvement at UCF, involvement in the local community, and exceptional work experience. They were further asked to respond to an essay question in 600 words about a meaningful contribution to a UCF organization, community service project or work experience and its impact on their development as a UCF Knight, as well as how they plan to use those experiences to continue their Knight journey upon graduation.
