I had no idea one can be a resident for admission but not for tuition. Sucks for me.
That seems REALLY strange. I've never heard anything like that before. Would it at least make it easier for you to get in-state for next year?[/quote]
I don't know. My scholarship offer says it can be revised if I enter as a non-resident and later gain residency. I wonder if the scholarship is basically designed to offer the in-state rate at full price to an out of state person. I'll find out if they'll pull the scholly if I get residency. If so, my great offer just became very mediocre.[/quote]
Your scholarship is based off a percentage. So if you are a non-resident given 25K/year for example and you became a resident in 2L/3L you would receive the same percentage that you received initially (about 70% scholarship of tuition). When you would move to instate you would receive 70% of resident tuition.[/quote]
This is true. I went through this last year. I was considered a resident for admission but not tuition purposes as well.
