Questbridge in the suburbs

I've completed my application for the Questbridge National College Match, but something just occurred to me. I live in the suburbs, meaning I've gotten better opportunities and a better living style than urban school kids have had. Our house is worth about 200k and we have about 100k in investments, but we only make 15k a year (my dad is unemployed). Do you think this is considered financially in need? I understand there are many other factors (ie, my parents pay full tuition for my brother's college education and I have to work to earn money for my activities). It seems as though most kids that are selected as finalists come from urban areas.
