I applied to more out of state schools than FL schools. I don't want to work in FL long term. I was already accepted at Tennessee and as long as my wife gets a job I qualify for in state tuition right away. I also applied to Cincy, OSU, and Iowa.


Same here. I'm applying to 20 schools (16 with fee waivers, though) and the great majority of them are out of state. I just haven't really travelled so Idk where I want to live yet... I'm applying to... UConn, Tennessee, Kentucky, Wake Forest, UGA, Iowa, Wisconsin, Tulane etc. (But UF and FSU are veeeery high on my list. In-state tuition FTW!)


Yeah, you really can't beat the in-state tuition. As of right now, I'm only applying to one school out of FL but I may add more to that list. I'm pretty sure I will end up practicing in FL, so I'm not sure if it would be to my disadvantage or not to go to a school out of state if I do end up back in FL.

Honestly, in-state tuition is an amazing deal at either school and is probably why I will stay in FL. After all the budget cuts I am surprised it's as cheap as it is still.

Yes, but you should know that tuition is going up at both school in the near future. There's a slight increase for this year, if I'm right.

Even if it went up 25% it would still be significantly cheaper than most OOS. :)

Your GPA eats my GPA's soul, even with FSU taking my ~3.8 degree GPA haha. Are you applying anywhere else or are you all set now?

Is FSu your # 1 choice? Where else did you apply, if you don't mind me asking?

Haha, don't worry, they'll leave you a message. But if you want to pick it up, the area code is 850.

Also, pessimism isn't allowed on this thread until April :wink:

FSU wasn't my #1 choice at the beginning of the cycle. I applied to a wide range of schools. If you want me to be more specific, PM me.

Hey barbie mentioned that FSU will take you degree GPA if higher than cumulative. Is that a rumor or is that a thing that school admits publicly? Oh I really!!! hope they do take degree GPA!

I called 2 diff times to verify, and they said yes its true! you can call yourself if you dont believe me :)
they said they take the higher of the two, as long as you have taken a substantial amt (prob 40+) credits there. this is for admissions purposes, not sure ab scholarship or anything of the sort.
