On their website, it says that anyone who is in the top 10% of their class or has a 3.5+ unweighted gpa is automatically accepted, so that's not something I'm worrying about. I did the npc for WSU, but there's not many factors in the npc (I'm going to apply as a WUE student but the npc only had in-state and out-of-state). How much do you guys think I'll end up paying? If there's any other factors that I missed that will contribute to the amount that I will end up paying, feel free to let me know.

    The WUE rate would be 1.5 instate tuition plus the rest of the costs....so probably about $30k per year.

    With your low EFC, I doubt it will be affordable especially since you'll also have expensive travel costs.

    How much will your family pay each year?
