Last year my EFC was 14,000, still high I realize, but this year (2012-2013) it is a bit higher. Just completed FAFSA and my EFC is 18,000.
I don't know much about the process, but I assume it went up because my parents income slightly went up.
With an EFC like mine, can I expect to get anything at all from schools like UNC-CH, Cornell, and USC (California)?
My parents have told me they will try to support me the best they can, and are willing to put forth $15,000 to $25,000 (at the MOST, and this would really be pushing it) per year (for two years. I'm a transfer student).
I did a little research but couldn't find much from past students. Realistically, with that EFC, should I expect anything in financial aid?
