Even after my admit phone call my file showed $0.00 for several days.  Good luck!

No, you cannot change back. 
If you go to FSU you must still be a gators fan.

Strange as it may sound i too think the law is a good one.  I'm from Alabama and would be in favor of the law here so it would be hypocritical of me to oppose it.  My only grip is that i made decisions based on the current system that won't be i place in a few months.

None.  In fact FSU is still telling people that they will get the in-state rate.  (That was friday anyways)

not yet.  i changed the OP to more accurately reflect that...sorry about the confusion.

Congress should be getting out soon. You might be in luck.

Only one senator voted aganist the bill.  I would think it unlikely that Jeb doesn't sign it.  But we can hope!

Going to school in Florida?  Out-of-state?   If you’re like me you were told that you would qualify for In-State-tuition for your second and third year.  YOU WILL NOT GET IT.  There is a new bill scheduled to become law in July.  Look here at the Florida Senate (bill 2264)   scroll down to the bill text and view the newest bill.

  http://www.flsenate.gov/session/index.cfm?BI_Mode=ViewBillInfo&Mode=Bills&SubMenu=1&Year=2005&billnum=2264

The new law will prohibit you from earning in-state tuition unless you live and work full time in FL for 12 months.  Attending school during that period disqualifies you.  Other states have had this but it is new in Florida.

I sold my home in Alabama, Quit my job making good money as an educator in Georgia, gave up my seat at every other school that I was accepted, bought an apartment in Tallahassee…and all b/c I was promised in-state fees for the second and third years.  I cannot get my job back, I cannot get my home back, I cannot go to LS anywhere else and I cannot attend FSU at these prices! 

FSU in-state = $7,500.00
FSU out-state = $27,500.00

If this effects you then we need to help each other.  Call, write letters, anything you can do to express the hardship imposed by this new law.
