I just found out that I will never be a virginia state resident as long as I am just a student! i will have to work for a year, then become a resident. damn! I thought that I will become one after one year. I had it all planned out. Well, i don't know what to do now! that is my question. should i go back to california, and study there. or move to another state which has high admission rate for its own state residents, etc? or according to the virginia law, i will have to work for a year, then i can become a resident. I don't know what i should do now.
