And as I've said; for IS'ers, UMich is a deal. But to try and convince anyone that paying twice as much as the IS'er sitting next to them, for the same degree? is also a deal? And to incur debt to do it? That's what I rail against.
Not knowing the Institutional (aid) Method was applied by state schools? is where I fell short on homework. I ignorantly assumed the FAFSA EFC would apply since it was a govt. formula. But I'm still not bitter about that. I make a lot of money and have assets that some schools think should be available to finance an undergrad degree. I don't agree with that and I don't feel singled out. It's just the way it is. I just think the "sales job" that pushes kids to beg, borrow or steal for an undergrad from certain institutions, is wrong.
