Hey I think I am in a similar situation as you! UF is my number one choice but I too have struggled with standardized testing. I have been hesitant about submitting an addendum about my standardized testing issues, is there any advice you can give me? :)

Congrats on UF! Did you get a chance to go to the ASD? If so, what impressions did you get? I was a little underwhelmed with the LGBTQ culture but the Black Student Union seemed excellent!
