How to answer this tricky CSS Profile question?
Working on filling out the CSS. In the section that asks about Student Resources there is a question that says "Enter the amount that your parents expect to be able to contribute to your 2013-2014 college year expenses."
Why do they even ask this when they've asked for all of your other financial info? I thought it was up to the school to tell us what they will offer. How will our answer here affect our package? Besides the amount we can contribute now may change significantly between by next year.
Does everyone put a "low-ball" figure here?
