This happened to me a week or two before a decision was reached.


Was your decision good or bad? haha


Haha, good! Guess I should have specified.

In via packet!

Was leaning towards Georgia State, but it couldn't hurt to visit UF.

With no $$ and OOS tuition, UF just isn't worth it. Good luck everybody!

And it makes me sad, I'll likely be at GSU next fall as well.

It really irks me, my state law school - Rutgers, offers easy transitioning into in-state tuition...and yet other states don't extend the same offer. C'est la vie.

What confused me was how FSU made it seem like it was easy to get in-state after the first year. They made a point to mention it, why would it be different at UF?

You could probably get in-state after a year if you knew the guidelines ahead of time and were strict about them.

The "Intent to work in Florida" is a fairly subjective criterion.

The guidelines looked pretty strict on UF's website, especially for younger people. It made it seem like my parents would have to become residents as well.

It's super easy in Florida to get residency (as opposed to Texas :evil: ). I believe most OOS students here get in-state tuition after their 1L year, provided they don't procrastinate.

I think that the states with the tough residency guidelines are really hurting themselves. It's hard to take advantage of brain drain from states like Florida when you basically make it financial impossible to justify the move.

Difference being that there is at least one school in Texas that would provide a good return on investment, even if you're paying OOS.

That's good to hear, it is relevant to my interests, hopefully I'll find out more at ASD.

I've always heard good things about Austin, a bunch of my friends went to that ACL festival there.

Huh, go figure. Crap. At least their deadline (for me at least) is May 15...I guess I'll put in a deposit elsewhere and visit UF a couple weeks after ASD.

That's exactly my plan KnB.

edit: Except I'll likely be going to ASD. Only problem is there is a huge party the day after at my UG and there is no way I am missing it. So I will be driving all night afterwards haha.

Haha, I'm from New Jersey (Don't let the avatar fool you) but the difference in cost for flights is just too much for ASD. I'll just go there solo.
