question about residency (IE: in state or out of state)

<p>Here's the deal. I live in NJ. have my whole life. However, a few years ago my grandma who owns a house in florida got sick and eventually passed away. Her house went to my dad, who still owns it to the day. We rent it out down there. We pay taxes on it, etc.
Do I count as an In-state student or an Out-Of-State student.</p>

<p>I am wondering this because Florida has forever been one of my favorite colleges, and I love the sports teams, but for out-of-state, my GPA is simply too low. I am a sophomore now, at about a 2.9, but I will likely finish next year about 3.1, and by the time i apply for college be at 3.2 or 3.3. </p>

<p>Could I apply for in-state to UF?</p>

<p>I believe you or your parents need a way of proving residency, such as FL Driver's License, Voter's Registration, etc. to be considered in-state.</p>

<p>(I had to fill out a Residency Affidavit a few weeks back since I didn't appear as a resident on file for some reason and these were the only methods listed as proof.)</p>

<p>So is there a way for me to apply to actually gain residency? I don't think i plan on moving, but as of a way to prove residency, is there something we can do with the house? My parents and I still live in NJ as I had already said, so our liscences, voters registration, even my permit is all issued from NJ.</p>

<p>This (<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;) is the form for residency classification. It's pretty straightforward. Your situation seems unlikely, but you can discuss your individual situation with UF directly for the most accurate response.</p>

<p>Even if in-state, your GPA will hurt your admissions chances.
Look on this UF thread for the admitted stats.</p>

<p>You are not in state in any way. My family owns a house in North Carolina even though we live in Florida.</p>

<p>Am I a RESIDENT of North Carolina?</p>

<p>No, of course not. As such, I won't have the instate benefit of applying to UNC.</p>

<p>The process for you to fraud UF into believing you are instate is very difficult.</p>

<p>Aside from your parents putting the Florida house literally in your name, admissions is not going to buy it.</p>

<p>it will be very difficult to get in with a 3.3 regardless but gl w/ whatever happens</p>

<p>Seems pretty easy. Get a FL drivers licenses using your FL house and get a voter registration card using the FL address. So when you claim residency you will have both.</p>

<p>Even if he can manage to claim FL residency for a year somehow, the transcript will still be sent from a NJ school, which will probably be a red flag to admissions.</p>

<p>I wouldn't push it. Get your grades up and strengthen your application in other ways to make yourself a stellar OOS candidate rather than trying to scam the admissions office.</p>

<p>We are military, my son applied out of Virginia as a FL resident. I had to send copies of our IRS 1040s to prove we were filing as FL residents. I did the same when my daughter applied to Levin, the difference is quite a lot of money. With the budgets tight, they will be looking for all revenue streams.</p>
