Perhaps the little snowflakes these days aren't complaining about nothing... that has gotten crazy expensive!

(i swear I think tuition when I went there was like 4K a semester?) SO it's basically almost doubled in 15 years. I only went there because it was in state and I was raised by my grandparents and had no other option.
Wow. That's gone up even since my dd went 2010-2013.

The states with the strongest public university system of course would be the hardest to become a resident of. The first question you need to ask yourself is whether your parents are claiming you as a dependent on their tax return. If the answer is yes, it will be next to impossible to prove that you are a resident of another state. If, however, you can become independent, than it's an easier case, you just need an off campus address, driver license or other form of a state ID and state tax return.

Yes, you are right. Each state is different and within each state, some universities/colleges are more/less strict towards granting instate. I think I know the company you are talking about. I was wondering what exactly they'd do to make sure you get instate because if they are going to tell me the same thing that I can find out online, then why pay money for their services? It's probably expensive as well. Okay...I just checked their web site. It's too expensive for me at the moment.

I'd be independent and I definitely would seek employment while in N.Y. and continue to work there after college.

Now that she has lived up there for a while as an adult, she is in graduate school at the resident rate.
Really? Good for her! Did she not have to work for a year in order to get instate?

I know some states after many years they just grant you it but I don't know because some states it doesn't matter how long you live there, you still have to work, have a lease/mortgage, etc.

Oh okay. That actually makes me feel better. Some states require that your name be on the lease and won't accept any letters.

To tell you the truth, I don't know how anyone cheats on getting instate. The amount of documents I was asked after living almost all my life in Georgia was ridiculous and they still denied me (I had no choice but to go to another state to work and because I lived there for a year, I was automatically kicked off of instate).

I did this, thanks. But I do know that even though some states have set rules, some states/universities focus more on some rules than others. In my state, it's important for them to see that you are financially independent (they determine this by housing for example). They even listed how much you need to make, etc.

This is true and definitely true with my state. My state has some of the most expensive out-of-state tuition in comparison to other states (adjusted for the cost of living). It's really sad because they love to say they don't have money to support education but the "find" the money for wars and a bunch of other sh**.

Obtaining residency in NYC for tuition purposes is stupid easy.

She lived and worked in NYS for about 18 months after graduation, then she lived in China for about 15 months, then returned upstate.

I saw on a web site that specializes in helping people get instate say that it is hard to get it in N.Y. Your comment makes me feel better...a lot better actually. One thing I do notice from people who have posted is that N.Y. focuses a lot on making sure you have lived in the state for at least a year. If I have to move to N.Y., I will try to get a full-time job and work for at least a year and see if there is a utility bill that I can have put in my name. Obviously I would go about a license and. Vehicle registration change. I would also register to vote in N.Y.
