<p>*My father is not in any financial shape to help, but will fill out all forms. My mother re-married and while she is disabled, he makes a lot of money. Nonetheless, he is not responsible for my tuition.</p>
<p>You may not qualify for for the aid that you would need with all 3 parents' incomes and assets being considered. </p>
<p>**The problem that I see is that you will have an expected "family contribution" and yet no one is going to pay for it. Your mom can't, your dad can't, and your step-dad won't.</p>
<p>So, even after splitting EFC amongst 3 kids, you could still have an EFC of - say - $20k...with no one paying it.**</p>
<p>That said, you can go ahead and apply to some of these schools and see what happens....BUT PROTECT yourself and ALSO apply to a few schools that will give you LARGE merit scholarships for your stats. LARGE scholarships....like full tuition or more. </p>
<p>Are you a likely NMF? </p>
<p>Do you have strong stats?</p>
<p>When you say that your dad "can't help"....does that mean that he has an income, but can't contribute? </p>
<p>Is your dad....
"low income" (like under $30k?)
"lowish income" (like around $50k or less?
"middle income"? Like $50k - 80k
upper middle (like 80k - 150k)
upper income like above 150k</p>
<p>What were your siblings' FAFSA EFC</p>
<p>When will they be graduating?</p>
