Newsflash! It's very easy to get a "deal" to get into Vegas. Not so much if you live there and want to go someplace else, especially in a hurry. Now, with passenger rates down it may not be quite as bad as it used to be.

Just curious, is the out of state tuition to UNLV really that much cheaper than in-state tuition in MA? or maybe you meant other states there, as well. Like I said, just curious. I have a neice in film school in Manhattan.

Throw some, but not all your caution to the wind but still be sure you have plenty of money! Good luck to you.

Go south. Rent a condo or a small house. 89123, 89141, 89074, 89012

Stay away from the apartments unless you love that life style. It is generally a loser in Vegas.

YOu will do fine. You have the magic ingredient...an income.

i dont think i've seen the las palmas apartments...i'm talking about Camden Breeze at Pecos/Tropicana which is really nice

Thanks! I was under the impression that if we move to Vegas, we would pay in-state tuition for UNLV. The in-state tuition there is significantly lower than what you'd find in New York or Boston. It is half the in-state cost of UMass Boston, for example.

I wonder if you have to reside in Las Vegas for a certain amount of time before you qualify for in-state tuition?

So my situation would apply to "Family relocation to the state." I assume that would automatically and immediately make my wife a Vegas resident and qualify for in-state tuition, correct?
