It's virtually impossible to get instate in Virginia.
I guess I am in a little different situation, as even though W&M offered 10000 dollars/year as some sort of in-state out-of-state tuition equalization, it doesn't matter to me because of the GI Bill. So the "scholarship" they offered was for far less than face value. I guess what I meant is that hopefully Georgia doesn't use the same tactic for me personally, though I could see how it would be beneficial to others.
Dude, I was out of state, and they offered me a in-state tuition equalization, plus more money a little later in the cycle. I have the Post 9/11 GI Bill as well. Not only is law school free, but you get whatever the VA overpays back as a refund. You'll definitely get in-state for 2L and 3L, so if you have 3 years of the GI Bill left, law school is free. If you don't get an equalization the GI Bill won't cover everything if you're paying an out of state rate. However, since you got in early you should be good.
