Does anybody know how much residency matters in UF's admissions? I looked on their website and on the ABA's description, but I couldn't find any quotas or anything.

I think I read somewhere on this forum that they do have a substantial in state quota. I seem to remember something around 70-75%.

I believe they got rid of that this year, if I am not mistaken.  Then again, I am more knowledgable of the laws [that I create] in California.

You create your own laws?

The California State Legislature is just a formality -- everyone on the inside knows that I really run things in Cali-fornia.

Florida specifically says they do not use residency as a factor in admissions, but I'm not so sure I believe them. I called and asked an adcomm, hoping my instate would help too.

The UF rep I talked to when he visited my undergrad said in-state is not a consideration.  I suspect it will be one though, since Floridian accepted students are more likely to come than Alaskan accepted students. Or maybe my logic sucks, and Alaskan accepted students would want to get out of the cold  ???

i could be wrong but i thought i read in their material that it matters a lot.  i know i read something saying they 'have an obligation to the state of florida to produce florida lawyers.

Its a pretty big deal to be in state.  From UF website:

"The College of Law has a responsibility as a state institution to educate lawyers who will serve the legal needs of all citizens and communities in Florida.  The college seeks to enroll students who will distinguish themselves in serving the state..."

"Students qualifying as state residents make up about 85 percent of the class, though UFlaw does not have a cap on out of state."
