Predicting my FA package

I am an accepted student at Agnes Scott College, and I just got my Challenge Scholarship letter today. Unfortunately, the 8,000 yearly dollars will not cover the full cost of tuition. I was wondering if anyone could give me an insight into the kind of FA package I can expect to receive. I am especially interested in a good grant-loan ratio.

Adjusted Family Income: $41,000
EFC: $3,500 (my dad finds this perfectly reasonable)

Pell Grant: $3,000
Stafford Loan: Unknown at this point

Merit Scholarship: $8,000 per annum ($32,000 over four years)
GA Hope Scholarship: Do not qualify (from Tennessee)

Thanks in advance!

    Hey, I applied to Agnes Scott too. I was awarded the Letitia Pate Evans Scholarship which is like 17,000 a year. That along with a few grants I got means I have to borrow only 5,500 dollars I think. I got 34,950 in financial aid package but do not know if that's exactly how much tution plus room and board is anymore. I am waiting to hear back from the rest of my schools to compare financial aid!
