This may be a stupid question, but my daughter accepted an offer from a D! school for about 40% of the $65,000 annual cost. Would she still be eligible for academic $? She does not need it per say, but with her brother already at a NESCAC school (where our EFC is conveniently a couple thousand over the total annual cost), I am hoping to be able to take a vacation someday and/or retire before I die.
Also, does anybody have any experience and/or had success in going to the financial aid office at school #1 (the NESCAC school) for the older kid as a senior and finally getting them to throw you a bone after sending them nearly $200,000 for the first 3 years?
