Re: in state tuition after the first year. The short answer is no. The long answer is no unless you marry an Illinois resident. To get in state tuition you have to have come to Illinois for purposes other than education and work for at least a year. But if you marry someone who meets those requirements, I've heard you can qualify for in state.
Here is a more complicated question... What if I come to Illinois with my girlfriend and SHE becomes an Illinois resident, and then I marry her? Still work?
As far as I know yes. My girlfriend came with me from out of state and worked for my first year of law school. This year she transferred into Illinois undergrad as an instate student and pays instate tuition. I have tried to convince her that we should get married right now at a courthouse or something so I could get instate. But for some reason she didn't think that was very romantic.
You're not asking right. Tell her you'll spend the money you save on clothes or shoes or her ring and it'd sound slightly better for her.
