Here is some general info on applying to reclassification:

For law students, professional or occupational license is the big one.

I can speak for FSU. I was able to receive in-state after first year -- the comments above look accurate on the process. Call financial aid/admissions to confirm.

FSU Law was also a great experience. If you pull top 30% many doors will open (big law, federal clerkships, etc.) I suspect the same goes for Oklahoma. Although it's old news, this is worth repeating: whichever school you choose it will be significantly easier to locate a job in that region after graduation, unless you have serious ties to another region.

In terms of regional appeal, FSU competes well in Florida, Georiga, Alabama, and to a lesser extent, the rest of the south. The compension numbers are lower than similiar schools because a substantial portion of the students choose to enter the public sector (both Florida and DC).

Best of luck
