Twins Fall 2020 FASFA returned two very different Estimated EFC amounts
First son's confirmation and Expected EFC said $36K, second son's Expected EFC said $13K. We completed the same day (today) and know we have to wait a few days to get the formal numbers, but doesn't that seem crazy? We were very careful with our entry info, and definitely said 2 in college at same time in family of 4. We tried to use the copy feature so we didn't have to enter our tax info twice, but it didn't work (we think we had pop up blocker on) so we entered all the info twice. We also couldn't use the upload link option from IRS for some reason, so again, we manually entered data. Any advice? First and only children, so not sure of next steps. If the numbers are accurate and we didn't make a mistake, it's concerning in that if $36K EFC son picks a relatively inexpensive schoool, we won't see any aid for him. Thoughts? Help? TIA!23 replies
