Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that FAFSA only expects parents to contribute around 5.6% of assets while Rice expects parents to contribute up to 30%. Therefore, even if you make very little, it's possible that you'll be expected to pay as much as people making $100,000+ because of assets.
