So there is no explicit preference that is enjoyed by in-state applicants, but there is a de facto advantage to being in-state and applying to a public school, due to these quotas. I could see how this isn't something that would really be plastered on a website, or would be willingly discussed will prospective students.
That being said, does anyone know how far the definition of residency can be stretched?
Realistically, I've been a resident of PA for 22 of my 23 years, and Massachusetts won't "adopt" me for another 4 yrs... So am I stuck in limbo, or would I be able to get away with claiming residency in PA?
These were my thoughts (and hopes..) intially as well. But...
The kicker is that I had to change my driver's license/voter registration in order to get an apartment up here...
In the spirit of the former quote, do you guys think ADCOMS would raise an eyebrow to me calling myself a PA resident, while not actually possessing official residency?
If my current state's education system won't recognize my resident status, doesn't it make sense to for me to claim my original state as "home"?
