Alright, here's what's up. My parents make alot of money (180,000+/year) and have alot of other wealth in assets. I make ok grades (3.8 UC GPA) and have good test scores (SAT 1460/ACT 33). The problem is my parents hate me. They view having children as one of the biggest mistakes of their life and let me and brother know often. They used to beat me until I got big enough to fight back, but I never went to a foster home b/c I've got a nice home, nice clothes, nice car, etc. I don't qualify for any need based financial aid because of my parents income, but my parents have no interest in paying for me to go to college (they don't see the point of educationg another liberal who is only going to work against everything they want). Is there any way I can qualify for need based aid when my parents are pretty much loaded? Please help me with this. I don't want to have to go to a community college with the grades, ECs (pretty good), and scores I have. Thank you in advance.
