Forgive me if this has been addressed before; I searched old posts but couldn't find it---
There is an $8000 difference between our FAFSA EFC and the College Board calculator (which I guess is what the Profile will mirror) with the FAFSA being the higher number.
Does anyone know why there would be such a big difference? Is the FAFSA just used to determine federal aid eligibility or do the Profile schools also use it to factor their aid? All the colleges my D has applied to use the Profile.
