    Resident [Any Field]
    I know declaring residency in a particular state can increase chances of being accepted at a school in that state. Does anyone know what criteria make someone a "resident" of that state? Is it 1 year living in that state? Is it voter registration? Valid driver's license in that state? What if my parents still claim me as a dependant in a different state, can I still be considered a resident? Any information about this in general or as far as what particular schools look at for residency would be greatly appreciated.

    In most states it is something along the lines of "you must live in the state for one year for a purpose other than attending full-time higher education".

    I'm not sure about the dependent thing, but if your parents are still supporting you, chances are that you are living there for the purpose of attending school full time.
