Georgia State / Re: Class of 2011
« on: February 29, 2008, 09:32:09 PM »
Penny, the wording seems dire, but the experiences I have seen posted online seem to indicate that in-state can be achieved after a year.  The suggestion was to move there by July (I think) of your first year, so that everything will have time to process before August of your second year.  javascript:void(0);

The other option is the out-of-state tuition waivers.  Anybody have any idea who to contact about those and/or how easily/often they're given out?

I was there today. I was told the waivers are only based on merit, and all out-of-staters are reviewed automatically. Decisions will be out by April 1.

If you want to get instate, you have to work full-time for 1 year (which you cant do while going to school full time).

Oh well.

Anyone think the school is worth out-of-state tuition?

hey guys,
I believe if you move here permanently, which means license change, taxes, and voter registration, it is one year from that point. because they will ask for these documents when you go to prove you are a resident.

But it also says these are musts:

"The person can demonstrate that they moved to Georgia for purposes other than attending any educational institution in the State of Georgia."

AND

"The person can demonstrate economic self-sufficiency and has contributed to the state by paying meaningful taxes."

You would have to be there 12 months before the first term you want in-state tuition, and you can't attend school full-time during that period.

Or.... are those rules that are over looked?

It seems like it is 12 months before each term. So if you moved in July, you'd be out of state 1L, but in 2&3L. But its the other qualifications that are a problem for me. As in the one I mentioned above, and "paying meaningful taxes".

Do you guys know anything about getting in-state tuition as an out-of-stater in 2L? What are GSU's policies? I've read everything there is to read about it, but I wonder how strict they are. It says you would have had to move to GA for some other reason than to attend school.

Do you all know of anyone who has experience with this?

I am thinking about attending GSU. I got accepted this week, but I am having trouble deciding. It's really cheap, but its rank in about 30 slots below my other options and it does not seem to have the best placement.

Any thoughts?

General Board / Re: Should I take Torts as an undergrad?

I talked to one of my professors (I had him for Copyright Law, Legal Problems in the Recording industry, and am doing legal research for him as a practicum) and he seems to think that Torts would help me out a bit.

However, I just found out that on the same night and time there is a class on Entertainment Law that I would not mind taking. I am a Recording Industry/Music Business undergrad and plan on doing Entertainment or IP law. BTW, if I take Entertainment Law instead it will count towards my major, and I will only need the 13 credits still. 

What do you guys think?

I am in legal writing and research right now. So it is not an either or thing for me. Torts will be next semester... if I take it.

Saddly during school I can't because I also work. But that would be a good idea for the summer.

I think the Torts class is for the paralegal program, but we actually have a bunch of law classes at my school. I am in Legal Writing and Research this semester.
