    I doubt it. Since they said they wanted to have all decisions made by March 15, I would assume they sent, well, all of their final decisions.

    Yeah, Iowa was my first choice. No acceptances here either. At the current count, I've had 6 interviews-- 2 rejections, 1 hold, and 3 I haven't heard from.

    i got an acceptance in the mail today. it comes in a 8 1/2 x 11 white envelope. good luck to all those that are still waiting.
    can anybody confirm that you can't establish in-state status after the first year there? i'm from california.

    As with most states, you aren't making money and paying taxes while a student...so you don't get to become a resident. <a href="http://www.uiowa.edu/registrar/Wresreg.htm" target="_blank">http://www.uiowa.edu/registrar/Wresreg.htm</a>

    none,
    there are several things you can do towards that end: register to vote, register your vehicles, buy property, pay income tax, etc.
    i'm a non-trad and married. my wife and i will be paying state taxes and purchasing a home. many states allow you to establish residency even when you aren't paying taxes, if you comply with other rules.
    i just thought i remembered iowa as being near impossible.

    I am an in-state resident that just found out that I am will be added to Iowa's alternate list.

    Iowa is my first choice. Does anyone have any advice for me?
