  •  Residency. (0+ / 0-)

    "Residency" gets interpreted all kinds of ways.

    When I moved to California for graduate school, I was the only one of four incoming out-of-state graduate students in my department who passed the residency requirements on the first try.

    In order to demonstrate residency, we had to:

    1. Register to vote, and;
    1. Actually vote in at least one election (and provide proof--in Cali, we have ballot stubs), and;
    1. Have a mortgage or lease in our names, and;
    1. Have a drivers license or state identification card for at least a year, and;
    1. Have utilities (water and electricity) in our names, and;
    1. Have a bank account established in-state, and;
    1. Not leave the state for the period of one year.

    There's more I'm sure I'm forgetting.  I kept those documents for over ten years, "just in case".  ;)
