and you have to be here one year at the time the semester starts, the first day of class. I think the OP said they're moving in Nov? that means she wouldn't be eligible for in-state until spring 2010 Or Summer 2009 if she wants to go Summers.

while we're at it, the clock starts ticking, not when she moves in but when she gets a drivers license and registers to vote. USF made me jump thru hoops on this. They relented when I showed that my husband was transferred by his job and that as mature people with a job, we didn't coe here intending to keep our "residence" out of state at Mommy and Daddy's. FL Unis don't have enough room for in-state students, they're clamping down on transfers and out of staters. It's pretty competitive.

We should know wether I am selected for the job this week. It is kind of scary moving to a totally new location. We own a beautiful house here and we will probably keep it and just rent it out. I would hate to lose it in case we want to move back.

I have also read all the horror stories about home insurance (hurricane, flood etc.). I am also scared of the housing costs as well, there are some dives down there that cost alot more then my current house. Where are the lowest property / insurance costs that are still somewhat easy commutes to Macdill? I know we wont buy right away but its nice to mabye live in that location to see how it is going to work..

I would love to live by the beach or as close as possible to a pier for fishing but I understand this is where the high property tax and insurance is. I am a certified scuba diver as well so look forward to getting in the ocean. All we have are dirty lakes here.

I am so glad I found this forum it sure does offer alot of information.

Keep the info coming....anything helps

Bryan

Cool people will correct you

that this is the GULF but geologically that's just an arm of the ocean, right? Salt water, ocean critters. all that. The best reefs tho are in the ATL off of the Keys. But that's a 5-6hr. drive depending on which key you go to.

Hello!

I was raised in Bismarck, then the military has taken me all over the country. But no, I don't miss ND(but we do visit family every year.)

My husband commutes to MacDill from Sun City Center(South of Brandon) at 6:30am and 4pm. His commute is 30-40 minutes depending on traffic on the Crosstown. Lots of military in my community(Cypress Creek) so we are not too crazy to live this far out. We also have a good elementary and Middle school within blocks!

Good luck on your move!

I am excited to hear from an original ND resident... So how do you like the area? I dont think I will miss the weather in ND one bit but will miss the hunting. I am interested to hear about gibsonton... anyone know anything about that area... would you need hurricane insurance there and how about property taxes? Everyone say a little prayer for me tonight as I hope to find out about the job tommorrow.. I am getting excited the closer it comes...

if I dont get the job I may just start looking outside the govt. Anyone know of anyone looking for an excellent IT technician? I have been running a business for over 5 years now and am the sole IT person for two hospitals in ND and 3 clinics and I also support over 200+ businesses in and around the area.. I can send my resume if needed... seriously let me know as all this hype about Florida has got me very interested.

Thank you so much,

Bryan

Well, did you get the position?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the area. I can't believe I was on the beach while ND had snow!

As for Gibsonton, I don't know anything. I do know commute times in the Brandon/Riverview/ Sun City Center area all depend on how fast you can get to the Highway! I know some places in Brandon who have longer/same commute times as my husband does and Brandon is closer to Tampa. We live right off of 75- so commute times are shorter than being stuck in traffic for a few miles.
