Congrats! I notice you said this "was" your top choice. Are you no longer considering UF? If not, would you mind withdrawing for applicants like me and Eas? :)

Admitted via snail mail yesterday (163/3.9)! Hoping for a decent scholarship offer to justify attending.

LOL! You sound like me on the UA thread when a T-14 bound person comes in. Im totally like, "Congrats!!!!!!!!Now Withdraw! :twisted: "

If it helps, I'll probably be freeing up a seat and $$ really soon. :)


Hahaha, yeah, it's killing me knowing how many people that will definitely not be attending haven't withdrawn. I feel like a lot of people, mostly not on TLS, don't even know about withdrawing until the seat deposit deadline passes :x

That's reassuring haha, are you in at UA yet?

I'm concerned about my residency status in the eyes of UF. I live in Florida but attend school in another state so I haven't been in the state much at all since we bought our house there two years ago. As such, I still don't have a lot of the physical proof of residency that I'm worried UF may request. I applied as a resident and my status checker says that I'm considered a resident. My question is, is this something I should discuss with UF ASAP or just try to fly under the radar? FWIW I'm not trying to scam UF, I will pay whatever tuition they deem correct, that being said, I'm not trying to throw out 15k a year.

My opinion is that "flying under the radar" in such an instance is not a good course of action. I would definitely attempt to get it sorted out in advance. Of course, if you are going to go to UF for sure and will pay out of state if necessary than you really only stand to lose in-state by drawing attention to your situation. Having said that, if you are worried that you might be actually out of state by their definitions and standards of determination, I suppose it would be ethical to confirm whatever details you believe might make that determination questionable.

From what I understand, in CA property ownership (or maintenance of a permanent address) and drivers licenses and and vehicle registration spanning more than a year should qualify to confirm residency. However, if you have been paying in-state tuition and claiming residency in another state this may pose a problem. If this is the case, you may well want to contact the relevant financial affairs office and disclose all necessary facts in order to get a concrete determination. I don't say this on ethical grounds alone; bear in mind that this is the institution that is granting you a degree to practice law, and that both the institution and the state bar can deny you the ability to practice if they believe you have misrepresented yourself. I would err on the side of caution and pay out of state for a year, if this is what their policies and regulations require you to do based on your actual circumstances. To this end, disclosure and further discussion can only add clarity to making a determination that is consistent with UF's policies.

FWIW, I had been residing out of state for a year before returning to pursue studies in CA paying in-state. But my move out of state was temporary for work and I researched how to exemplify that I intended to maintain ties in CA before leaving; as a result I maintained my CA vehicle registration and drivers license and I filed a resident tax return for CA and a non-resident for the other state for the period I was away. UF's policies will likely vary, but I would suspect that if you have conducted your affairs in another state as if you were intending to be a resident there then you will likely have to pay out of state for a year. You property ownership might add a component which causes UF to see things differently.

In short, I would talk to them and discuss all the relevant factors, and hope for the best.

Thanks for the well-thought out response. I agree with you, have to err on the side of caution and jump through all the hoops to be sure that you're not doing anything unethical, especially with the bar involved. Worse case scenario, I pay OOS for 1/2 semesters then my situation would lend itself to a relatively easy change of "residency".

I've probably said this earlier in the thread but I'm a 1L this year and I'd be happy to answer any questions.

So to all of my fellow NDR-ers, when do you all expect to see some movement? It looked like last week they changed some statuses on Monday only. So in light of the holiday today, should we expect something tomorrow or not?

Don't you think that they're going to wait for a while. If they've waited this long it only makes sense they'd give the December takers some time to apply which would give them a better idea of how their cycle is going.

Sorry about being a downer, btw

Pretty much. My prediction was mid February. But it can't hurt to obsess over where I'll be spending the next 3 years of my life, right?!

Lol slawww, agreed. And I suppose we'll see. I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't hear anything until about a month from now, but I've seen people on LSN with similar numbers to me recently be admitted, so I'm prepared for the worst but hoping for the best. A bit of optimism never hurt anyone! :lol:

NDR since the same day. My prediction for movement is mid-February.

You should almost definitely get in. I also feel better about my chances knowing that you've been NDR for the same amount of time.

Yes, I was part of that madness.

Things are more civil on the Gainesville thread. Stetson thread is downright courteous.

Haha. This is definitely a civil thread, but those in the Miami thread you're referring to are clearly not attending Miami, so I don't think that reflects those students.

Two people with my same stats got admitted on 2/20 last year according to LSN, so I'm trying to tell myself to chill out for at least another month. I'm definitely not looking at that as a guarantee for me though--I'm right at both medians but also white, male, and OOS...

As a matter of fact, I expected to be admitted straight away! Not because my numbers are stellar, but just because that's how I wanted it to be. :D

In all honesty, I'm guessing sometime in the next few weeks (probably mid Feb). However, my expectations so far have been almost exactly one month behind schedule... Maybe mid March??? ...Oh boy.
