Hi everyone, my name is Vince, and I am seriously considering moving to the state of Maryland with my girlfriend and daughter. I am currently a college student pursuing my associates so i can transfer to a 4yr university to earn my bachelors. I live in Virginia right now, and i just feel like this state has nothing more to offer me and I look forward to going somewhere new to plant my feet down and build my own foundation for my family. If anyone could give me any information (good and bad), tips on what i sould consider, employment, good colleges i should look into, a good nursing school for my gf and just anything else that might help me make my decision. I am 20 years old by the way, just in case my age would play a factor. All replys will be helpful.

Thank you

In addition to all the other hurdles you have to cross...
adding out of state tuition rates to the should probably be avoided.

Find a college where you can get the best deal for everything
(tuition, housing, etc) and get that done asap.
That will most likely be somewhere in VA.

If that's somewhere close to where GF is living with daughter...
like at her Mom's? Well, that's OK too.

I agree with this post. It is difficult to qualify for in-state tuition if it looks like you moved here just for school.

If you still want to move, you might consider the U of Maryland, Baltimore County. For your GF, both the UM campus downtown and Johns Hopkins have 4-year nursing programs, and the community college has various medical curriculums. Baltimore City is the home of some outstanding hospitals. In addition, the cost of living is less than in the metro Washington area.
