Just curious, and this might be a really dumb question, but I am wondering something...
Say that I want to go to a public, 4-year university, out of state.
So for instance, I want to go to Indiana University, but I live in Ohio.
I apply to Indiana, get a full tuition + room/board merit-based scholarship, and decide to go there. After four years of learning wonderful information as an Education Major, I decide to stay in Indiana because I love it so much.
I then get a job at a public high school, live in a small apartment, and go to a public Law School nightly and full-time during the summer when I am not teaching, using the money that I get being a teacher to pay for tuition/other expenses.
The bottom line question: Do I qualify as an in state student in Indiana for Law School if I apply while I am living in Indiana, even if I was out of state student for the undergrad?
Also, if I am 24 years old and living on my own money, does my parents annual income have any say on my estimated contribution for Law School?
Thanks for any help, I really do appreciate it.
