Well tuition at UIC is $50k per year for OOS and its nearly impossible to become a resident at any point during school, and thats not including living expenses in Chicago. So my vote is for Albany or UTSA
You can become a Texas resident after 1 year living in Texas. I would research the schools to see what they are known for, and see which one matches up to your current interests the best. Decisions suck, but any decision is better than no decision.
