Hi. I'm a very low income student (8k/year) with a high home equity. My family's house is valued at around $400K, and there is no mortgage.
I'm aware that the EFC doesn't include home equity, but the CSS profile does. How do the Ivy League schools use home equity in their financial aid calculations?
I plan to do an individual search on their websites, but I was hoping for a general idea. Which of the Ivies and other top schools disregard home equity? Assuming acceptance, is there any chance I can get a full ride (room+board) at a top school?
