In an effort to modernize, Yale will no longer use the terms "freshman" and "underclassmen" and will instead adopt gender-neutral terminology, such as "first-year" and "upper-level students." University officials still anticipate students and faculty to use the old terminology, since they're "deeply ingrained in our everyday language and in Yale's history." The new terminology can be found in the Undergraduate Regulations and the First-Year Handbook and is expected to appear in all Yale College's publications and communications by the start of the 2018-2019 academic year. The effort to phase out the older terminology is "a piece of a larger movement to reflect the diversity of college campuses" and also in part because the "two words in particular are gendered," according to Jennifer Keup, Director Of the National Resource for the First-Year-Experience and students in Transition.

I was wondering if you knew about standards about specific schools like UF and such, I already got into UCF with a 5200$ scholarship but that was with my old SAT score of 1230, I now have a 1300 with a HPA (I already know I have the 100% Bright Futures so that wasn’t really my question) but my question was what were the requirements for UF summer, I’ve read the charts and such about – for summer and 1070-1300 but besides that I feel I’m a little low on the standards with a but I have done over 13 clubs at my school (which I have been readily involved with all including JV Cross Country and Varsity Track), Hispanic, my Mother attended the University in the 80’s, and I believe form the responses that I’ve gotten from my Guidance and peers that I wrote a good essay. With your expertise in the college application pool, do you feel that I could get in or would it be based solely on my lower HPA.
