UF gives no preference to in-state. If your numbers were well above, then it was likely yield-protection.

Actually- according to state law when it comes to public colleges and universities FL schools must have a certain percentage of FL residents (60%+). If your numbers were well above then that is wonderful but if they is someone else just like you and they are a FL resident then....
I'm a FL resident and I didn't even get waitlisted... dinged with 2.8/169
I was waitlisted at UF last year. I sent a letter of continued interest and also went to meet with the dean of admissions, who was very indifferent and basically made me feel stupid for going to meet with him the first place, and basically told me you do not stand a chance to get off the wait list because very few people do.
