To get in-state tuition at UMD you must either (a) marry a Maryland resident or (b) have earned an income, not primarily derived from law school loans, for at least a year prior to applying for in-state status. Doesn't seem easy to me. Maybe it would be if I were swooning over a Baltimorean. That said, I am a Virginia resident who will be at UMD this fall. I visited both schools and liked Maryland more. If you thrive in urban environments, I'd suggest Maryland over W&M. I'll gush about Maryland via PM if you'd like.
