I'm sure you've done this, but be certain to closely check the residency requirements in VA as they relate to in-state tuition. Many states go to great lengths to prevent people from doing what you've described.Yes, thank you. We briefly looked at doing this for Eldest whose first choice was an out of state state school for which we are paying $20,000 more per year than state residents. Heck, that difference would have paid for the house we never quite got around to buying.Fortunately, we already own the place in VA, so it is not a question of do we buy or not. I intend to be very nosy with the schools Youngest tours to see what the scoop is. This was just an exercise to determine if it made sense or not, as filing separately would probably kill the tuition savings.On a side note, Eldest probably would not have gotten into his school if he had been a resident. It has been frequently discussed and articles have been written that many state schools will give higher paying students a bit more understanding when it comes to slip ups. His GPA was definitely not as good as it could have been, although he did turn it around the last couple of years and had some great extra-curriculars. This semester's grades are not in yet, in fact last final is today, but it sounds as though he is more than holding his own.IP
