Anybody have any stories of being denied in-state status in VA when they thought they were a shoo-in? The policy states that the burden of proof is on the applicant to establish legal domicile (at least one year before the first day of classes for the year in which you hope to begin school)- which means showing clear intent to make VA your home, basically. Things typically used to demonstrate this include paying resident income taxes, registering your car, owning property, registering to vote, etc.
Anybody out there feel like they did everything they were supposed to do but were denied for some reason? Just trying to figure out how far that burden of proof must go....
If you take a look at the app it's pretty straightforward. I'm not exactly sure of the rules, because I've never lived outside of Virginia so I was pretty much a shoo-in, but the things you've asked are exactly what they ask on the app. I'm not sure of the definite rules but if you did most of the things named above (taxes, voting, property, etc.) then I would imagine you'd be fine.
