I just moved to Florida and am confused about my state residency. If I am a dependent, is my residency automatically the same as my sponsor's? I have not lived here for a year yet, but my sponsor already has a job, has registered to vote, and files taxes as a florida resident. Are there any other requisites I need to meet to become a resident?
Oh, and how are my chances?
GPA: 3.67 UW 4.17 UF weighted
ACT: 33 (first time w/o study, I can get it higher next time I test)

So, do I have a decent shot at UF? Could I consider it a safety, or would that judment be too brash?
