    OP said that Gtown would be about $30k from the NPC. But I can't imagine the parents want to pay that especially if they said they are not paying.

    I'm confident that the brothers can each find a program that fits their needs as far as major and opportunities, while being affordable with full tuition or more.

    Need based schools won't be a good choice because they would expect $25k or more based on EFC and that times four....

    The Profile formula is not published.

    That's because there is no "standard" Profile formula like there is with FAFSA. Each school that uses Profile decides which data they want to use and how.

    Howard, Temple and U Richmond are close to DC.

    OSU, UA, U Pitt have good engineering, science, computer science programs.

    UAH is in a prime location for aerospace engineering.

    I would be touring those schools and checking all departments for each brother's interests and the research and internship/coop opportunities at each.

    Was Arabic mentioned? I think Oklahoma U is an Arabic flagship.

    Then keep a few reach schools with the understanding that the money has to come through.

    Howard's web site for this coming year (scroll down for the scholarships):
    This year, it is saying that the scholarships are competitive.

    Its okay, I don't think Gtown is the end all be all. I'm applying to a plethora of safety schools, as backup. Schools like OSU, and Howard are my target. HYPS and Georgetown are my reaches. I know I probably won't get into those schools, or much less be able to pay for them, but I won't know until I try.
