Residency is like a formula. Get your license now, register to vote now, buy a condo (if you have the cash to do so considering the incredible issues with loans nowadays), discover family you have in state.
W&L. I live in Florida, just finished 1L here, and have gotten the impression that FSU does not carry much weight here. I intern at a federal court. There's 40 interns in my building, all of us are from Florida and Miami with the excpetion of two who are here on externship from Stetson.
