I'm a Florida resident as well. I completely understand where you are coming from with the number of schools in the area. Trust me when I say this but 24 is nothing. I started flight school in the military at 23 and thought I had to hurry up and get done, much like you are now. There's plenty of time and I wouldn't change anything or my decisions for the world. It's all about the experience of life. If you get so busy worried about the years of residency your going to be 30+ saying, " what the hell happen to the last five years of my life".
You may go to MD and find that it was one of the best experiences of your life. Hell, you might just run onto Mrs. Right. I gave up the clock and got a plan a few years back, and it truly has taken a lot of unwanted stress away. Whatever decision you make I'm sure it will all work out in the end.
I'm not trying to preach to you brother, just passing some life lessons learned that have helped me with the same kind of issues you're going through.
