Hi guys,

I was interested in hearing if any of you knew if it was possible to gain in-state tuition at the University of Minnesota upon moving there. I have a lot of family ties to the state and do intend to practice either in MN or Alaska upon graduation. Someone also stated that if you purchase a home, in some cases you are granted immediate residency.

I'm also wondering if by gaining state residency after the first year or so, schools (more specifically the U of MN if you happen to know) are still capable of precluding you from getting in-state tuition prices?

In my case, if I could buy a house and gain residency then I could theoretically save about 80 grand in tuition alone. Not something I would want to pass up.
