Defer Freshmen admission?
Hey, UIUC has a great Engineering dept, I love it and would love to go there. However the cost ($40,000) is huge and excessive, If i did it I would have to give myself $15,000 in debts per year.
So my question is, can I goto a local school such as UC Davis or Santa Barbara and complete my intro engineering classes and transfer in my Junior year.
Or am I admitted as a freshmen and only a freshmen, meaning I'd have to reapply as a transfer admitee in '08.
Also, does anyone have any good advice to establish residency, the school looks fantastic I just can't afford that much in debt.
