How does a full ride affect sibling aid?
I have a full ride to UMD (full Banneker Key), but I was wondering if me not paying anything for college would result in her financial aid not getting a sibling discount (she already was getting no financial aid to begin with). If that isn't the case, I'll just go to another school and we'll probably pay half and half at each school which will add up to the full sticker price of one school.26 replies
