I'm not so sure it would be so easy to get in-state tuition...quoted from the TLS profile of Illinois:
'A second year student gives us this website that describes how one can gain residency in Illinois. Overall, says Pless, “residency is hard to change. You must be in Illinois for non-educational purposes, which is tough to prove once you are here for school.”
A few things can get you that cheaper in-state tuition. If one of your parents lives in Illinois, you are automatically considered a resident. One expensive way to gain residency is by purchasing property in Illinois, while another way, more risqué, is to find an Illinois resident, drop down on one knee, and get that person to marry you. Since you can never plan on love, gaining residency is a crapshoot for many students, and a 2L reports that “it is possible after a year here, but not easy.”'
The profiles can be a little outdated so they may have relaxed a little bit, but I doubt it. 90k is still a sweet deal for a pretty legit school though!
Thanks, Buzz Killington. That means $5,154 of tuition, or 5.42% of sticker. Who wants to go halvsies on a plot of wilderness?
Aw I don't wanna be Buzz Killington my bad! Just makin sure we know what's goin on haha I ain't tellin stories about bridges!
Where are you getting the $5,154 figure from though? OOS is 40k a year right? I'm confused. I am interested in a plot of wilderness just for the hell of it though.
I got that number from catadonia, evidently. $40k is correct, which makes it more of a 75% scholarship and, more importantly, further cements your new status as Buzz Killington.
On the other hand this make that plot of wilderness all the more lucrative, surely one can be obtained for less than the $14,000 it would save you, and you can always sell your wilderness at the end of law school. This plan is flawless.
