I was accepted EA to Northeastern, I have gotten a 12,000/year deans scholarship, and I am really diggin the co-op vibe. I also have relatively high stats, and have done alot in my high school career. However, my family of 5 is currently living on a 29,000/year income, and we have been for over a year. The FAFSA did not reflect this. We have sent in all of the special circumstances forms and I am EAGERLY waiting for some kind of response from Northeastern, but it has yet to come.
SO, given all of that, what do you guys think my chances are at getting the financial aid I would need to be able to attend Northeastern? Although that FAFSA says our EFC is about 27,000, its really next to nothing. I am basically relying on 100% financial aid to be able to attend college.
