My EFC and an out of state school

<p>My EFC was about 13,000 and I am planning to attend an out of state school that costs about 38,000 per year. </p>

<p>What kind of financial aid should I expect?</p>

<p>We need more info...</p>

<p>1) Is this an OOS public? Which one?</p>

<p>2) Are your test scores high for this school (well in the top 25%)?</p>

<p>3) Is your GPA high?</p>

<p>4) Does this school give merit scholarships?</p>

<p>5) Does this school also require CSS Profile?</p>

<p>Edit to add:</p>

<p>* 3.2 W GPA; 29 ACT. Accepted directly into The College of Engineering for fall 2012.<br>

<p>Oh Gosh....are you asking about Penn State?</p>

<p>If so, sorry but you'll likely receive little or nothing more than a 5500 student loan and maybe $2000 in work study.</p>

<p>Most OOS publics do not give much need-based aid to OOS students...that's why they charge high OOS rates. IF they were just going to cover those costs with aid, why would they charge the high rates????</p>

<p>i hope you have an affordable instate school or some other option.</p>
