They called me yesterday as well with questions "Are you still coming?" "Did you get our email about orientation?"

I think they are trying to see how many open seats they may have.

Good luck!!

FORT MYERS — Florida's university presidents are fighting a bill that would make it harder for students to gain residency status in the state preventing them from eventually paying lower in-state tuition.

The bill (SB 2264) got nearly unanimous approval in both chambers of the legislature last month, passing 39-0 in the Senate and 117-1 in the House. It could save taxpayers as much as $28.2 million in tuition from students who are mistakenly classified as residents, according to a state report.

 But university presidents said Wednesday that it would negatively affect their ability to recruit graduate students, who often rely on gaining residency status after attending school for one year.

The bill would require students to have lived in Florida for one year before their first day at a state university. If they are already enrolled in a university, they could gain residency status only after working full time for one year and not attending school during that time.

Gov. Jeb Bush has yet to sign the bill and asked presidents for their recommendation on what to do.

"Veto it," was the response given Wednesday during the State University Presidents Association meeting at Florida Gulf Coast University.

In lieu of the bill, the presidents said they want the Board of Governors to adopt a rule that would apply the language only to undergraduate students.

The presidents association's meeting preceded today's Board of Governors meeting.

I sent most of the forms on friday of last week.  Are you talking about the consent to release grades form?  That's standard stuff. Basically it says that the school can notify the law journals and MC teams that you qualify for them.  Schools cannot release grades to anyone without your permission, so you are just signing a waiver for these in-school organizations. 

Have you looked at housing in Tally?

Shardik,
I am curious as to how you have it on "good authority" that Bush won't sign the bill.  I am hoping you are right.  Also, does anyone know how long he has to decide?

A FL Congressman called me a few days ago to let me know.  It (of coarse) is not set in stone but he seemed pretty sure.  Also, if you are looking at FSU, they were going to take care of students in our position anyways (granting out-of-state waivers for the second and third years).  So either way we would be covered.

Where do you hope to attend?  Wherever it is, good luck!  Lets just hope that something doesn't come back and bite us later.  :-\

Looks like Jeb will not sign the bill after all.  I have it on good authority that the gov. thought it would effect a group of people he did not want it to.  Congratulations to all of us...we just made a lot of money!   ;)

 ;D
