I have a technical question about one's state of residence. I am a legal resident of the state of Massachusetts - I vote here and I have a driver's license here. I have been in continuous residence since enrolling in college here and have not spent more than one week a year in Florida (where I am from). I am planning on applying for medical school admission, most likely in 2004. Mass basically says I will not be eligible to apply to their school because they require residency for five years prior to admission, and you must not have been a dependent of someone in another state during that period. I will be a dependent of my legal guardians in Florida through September. Should I try to revert to my Florida residency before then (not meaning I would move back there)? Or will it not make any difference in the end? Thanks so much.
