But for those really interested in "the letter of the law", the following is from FAFSA:
| The "Number of students in the household in college" question should only include students who will be attending at least half-time at a college that accepts Title IV funds (such as the aid from the FAFSA). Because students at a service academy are not required to pay tuition, they should not be included in this amount." |
Thank you for contacting Student Financial Aid Services, Inc.
Sorry folks. We can debate the merits of honor and honesty. Seems in this case, they are fully coincident with the legal requirements of such. As for Stealth_81? Not so "great information." although it might be deemed great wishful thinking. Indeed you did flunk both reading the small print and the honor code, it seems. Let's hope your Mid might teach you how to do it.
Seems you were either misled ... or fibbin'.
Lemme know if you'd like the toll free number. Ignorance may no longer be pleaded here though, for now you know the truth. And it was as noted in the beginning.
And aglages, I always told mine ... when you don't know, ASK. AND NEVER ASSUME. We readily note where that gets us. Ugh!
And glido, sorry to be the bearer of news you'd have preferred had come from others here. But at least you know the truth and how you're supposed to answer the question. Now, up to you to do the right thing.
