When I got down here in June I finished it and sent it in. About a week later I got the entire thing back with a letter that said it cannot be sent in until we start classes. However, the letter that was sent with information about obtaining in-state tuition only states that the other steps must be completed and dated before commencement of 1L classes. The Bar application just has to be completed before commencement of 2L classes.
OOS here. And yeah, the little worksheet they gave us was a bit misleading regarding the FL Bar part. Anyway, carman1880 is right. I noticed the rule that a person can't apply for the FL Bar until he/she is attending a law school, so I called Jennifer Kessinger and she told me that either during orientation or the first few weeks of class, a FL Bar representative will come and talk to all 1L's and help us that are OOS and trying to get instate tuition with submitting our application.
She told me that of all those requirements on the "obtaining residency and instate tuition", applying to the FL Bar is the only one that does not have to be dated BEFORE 1L classes begin.
