"I don't want to be over eager and potentially impact what her merit award might be."
"We did receive some "free" money with her acceptance letter but that was before we submitted our fafsa and profile applications"
So, Mjervis, it sounds like you already know what her Merit aid will be, unless she was also a candidate for a special scholarship. The FAFSA and Profile would help the college determine what need based aid your D qualifies for. That isn't going to change just because you indicate she will attend, but you certainly want to know if the need based aid will make it possible. If you need a lot of need based FA, is this a "meets need" school, or a school that is known to meet a high percentage of need, if not meet it 100%? Did your D apply to other schools, since she applied early action and not early decision to this top choice school? I hope it works out for her! (And you!)
