My mother just got a job offer in Skokie, Illinois. Anyway, I've always dreamed of going to the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. I am willing to to anything to go there for in state costs; the oos costs drove me away in the first place. I just met someone who used to live in NW Indiana and always commuted to Chicago. Although, I have a problem. My mom is commuting to Skokie, not Chicago, like 13 miles away... What is the most up northwestern city in Indiana? I want to live on the border, what town could make this happen? How far would it be from Skokie, Illinois?

Thank you

Whiting is in the extreme NW corner of Indiana. Getting to Skokie from there would suck to say the least .. the drive would be torture and some days she may end up spending more time commuting than working. Plus, to get in state tuition, I think you need to establish residency for awhile before the tuition break kicks in.

The OP would need to be a resident of Indiana for a period of 12 months to qualify for in-state tuition.

The commute from NWI to Skokie is not practical, by any means. In the Summer, construction and rush hour traffic are going to make the trip lengthy. In Winter, you can remove the construction but replace that with difficult weather. WIth these gas prices, there's no way I'd recommend that commute to anyone.

Kelley's undergraduate program is solid, but not worth going to such extreme lengths.

"What is the most up northwestern city in Indiana? "

Did you mean most up and coming?
If so, look for the newer areas, south of Hammond, East Chicago and Gary. Towns that are nice and closest to Chicago are Munster, Highland, Dyer and Schererville.

I think ARG meant the closest town physically to Chicago.

As well as being financially independent or receiving money from someone in state. You would need to get an Indiana drivers license, set up residency and probably register to vote in Indiana.

The closest city to Skokie is Hammond. It's about 40 miles and would talk you about an hour on average.
