I believe they hand out in-state tuition from day one provided you show them a 12 month lease.
The problem with this is that you would have to actually live in NJ. I work in Camden and it's obviously a crap-hole of a city. The most convenient thing would be to live in Philly and commute over to Camden each day via mass transit, but that won't get you NJ residency. It's possible to live outside of Camden (in NJ) and commute in, but I'm not sure you would enjoy the mass transit on the NJ side of the river and driving your car down 130 or 38 would get real old, real fast.
I left RU-C off my list of schools. I'm still hoping to get some $$ from Temple.
You can easily commute into Camden from Collingswood or Cherry Hill West. Not a big deal, really. But all things being equal, Temple/Villanova are definitely better choices.
