I'm currently a senior in HS in North Carolina but looking to attend West Virginia. Ever since i was little one, its been my dream to attend the University. My parents are West Virginia natives(lived there for 25 years) and have taken me to many football games and to Morgantown numerous times. It's my dream school. However, out of state tuition may keep me from attending. My mother has suggested that I gain residency in West VA by renting an apartment, attending Potomac State College at WVU(community college) for a semester as a part time student(therefore i could get a job) and then transferring over. I have cousin that did the same thing and is now attending with in-state-tuition. Would this be a smart thing to do or would i be better off paying out of state?
