Yeah there's the new building, I'm sure that plays into it a bit. We got some email blaming, "Rising fuel costs and the economy," etc.Do you know the reason behind the increase? Where's the money going? and Why so drastic? I've heard rumors about the new building and not being able to meet costs. Could be just rumors though.
I just don't understand how the state gives funding to a "state" school when it's 55%\45%. Georgia is solely in-state, and I think South Carolina is similar. Florida (UF), for example, accepts maybe 10 out-of-state students per year. Florida residents, albeit the State is larger than VA, also has NOVA who accepts a good amount of state residents.
Again, I'm not complaining (thanks to military scholarships) but I don't think the current system adequately serves the residents of Virginia, and that's a shame.
Oh well, for me it just made them equally as expensive as the other schools I was considering, and I think VCU is a better school.
