westsider, are you pretty well set on staying in Seattle, or are you considering Owen or UNC seriously?

Yup, pretty serious about Vandy and UNC. I have to agree with the comments about UNC - the area really is beautiful. I am having a pretty tough time deciding actually - got a pretty generous package from vandy (no word yet on other two). These things tend to vary wildly from day to day, but the last couple of days I have been leaning pretty heavily towards staying local. Since my wife would be staying here in Washington, it kind of makes sense.

Yep, the Northwest is hard to beat. And UW kinda has the whole area to itself.

Still, with a good package from Vandy and an admit to a school as strong as UNC, that makes the decision tough.

Good luck with the decision making. And congrats on being in the position to choose from 3 great schools!

Thanks Paul! I have to admit I didn't think I would be fortunate enough to be in this position. It could get even more complicated as I have a school-initiated interview for Tuck coming up!

By the way, how about the other people? Are you tilting towards UNC or their other schools?

Does anyone know how the rules for In-State tuition apply?

I applied RD3 here so I'm not going to hear back until mid March, but if you attend are you out of state for year 1 and then qualify in-state for year 2?

Most schools this doesn't make a huge difference, but at UNC it makes a very significant difference.

Just wondering how that works.


Thunderdogg,

I dug deeper into this issue and found, to my surprise :o , that it actually is possible to claim residency after your first year. It's not a foregone conclusion that anyone can get in-state tuition after the first year, but it's possible.

The absolute requirement is that you've lived in NC for 12 consecutive months. Not too bad, ay? There's more - see the link below to read in detail, but basically a committee will review everything on a case-by-case basis, going down a list of considerations that "may be significant" (very vague) in determining your "domiciliary intent."

http://regweb.unc.edu/residency/ncres.php

Essentially, you have to prove that you're in NC for the long haul. I was told that one good way to prove that is to get an internship in NC (shouldn't be too hard), but some of the other considerations are: housing, taxes, vehicle registration and driver's license, voting, etc. From what I understand, there's a reasonable success rate of out-of-staters pulling it off at UNC. It just requires a time commitment on your part to build a strong case for yourself. With that said, for a $20k tuition rate cut you'd have to be insane not to try!

I hope this helps!

it depends on the number of posts.. an intern <50, Manager >=50 & <250, Senior Manager >=250 etc etc.

I seem to remember that today was the day people would hear about merit scholarships from UNC - is that correct? I am hoping for a nice package!
Good luck to everyone!

Westsider,

It's tough to say based on their inability to get dates right! They said Monday, February 14th, so I suppose that could mean today or anytime up to Thursday, the 14th.

I'm crossing my fingers that you're right about Monday because I'm sick of checking my e-mail every 2 hours for any news.

Best of luck!

UPDATE:

I put in a call to Sharon Moore at the UNC office to get a firm answer on the fellowships. Will let everyone in on the real date when I hear anything!

No news here in terms of scholarships. Still got my fingers crossed...we'll see tomorrow. I did receive calls from 2 current students to welcome me to the program, but I've been out of town, so I'll be returning their calls tomorrow to get their perspective.
