I recently got accepted to the mathematics program under the EA plan, and I am thrilled about that. However, my family's main concern now is getting the proper financial aid. I typed in all of my data into their financial aid estimator and it was affordable for my family. It expected me to take on about 10K in loans a year and my family would pay 10k. If it helps answer the question, my family income is 80k a year. However, we have about 200k in real estate and owe 60k on it.
So, what I'm wondering is: How accurate is the financial aid estimator on their website? I would appreciate it if any past people who have received aid can tell me how it reflects their estimate. Even if you didn't do the estimate yet, it is still available online.
