i'm not going to FSU, but in response to getting residency. hmph. i went to UF for undergrad. i was in a 5 year program (engineering + plus i drank too much one year). my scholarship was for four years, so I applied for in-state tuition for the 5th year.
DENIED DENIED DENIED.
the only thing i didn't do was buy a condo. i had practically everything else.
HTH. don't count on establishing residence. if you're so bent on it, defer for a year, move to tally and bartend, then enroll.
