    Your parents are first in line in terms of funding your college education. So...NU computed your financial need AND your family contribution. That family contribution is expected to be paid by the family. When you receive outside scholarships...your financial need is reduced...and therefore, your need based aid is reduced.

    If you had wanted to lessen the financial costs to your family, you could have applied to colleges where you would have garnered significant merit aid...and possibly the costs to attend would have been less than at Northwestern. But that wasn’t your choice, apparently.

    The question you and your family need to ask is...is Northwestern affordable or not.
