Bama loves in-state people? I was under the impression that this wasnt a very big factor to them. I hope you are right though.
This is what their website says in the FAQ section:
Is Alabama residency considered in admissions and may I change my residency status after my first year of law school?
As the State's only public law school, Alabama residency is one of many factors in admissions. Thus, it is useful for nonresidents in particular to describe their ties to the State and/or their interest in the University of Alabama School of Law.
I have no ties to alabama.
