whitestavern Posted September 19, 2017 Share Posted September 19, 2017 I'm getting a bit nervous regarding financial aid potential for my dd, who will be entering college in fall of 2018. The NPCs we've been running are showing an EFC of around $30,000. I thought that was pretty good as we have a decent income and I wasn't expecting anything. However, in a conversation with my accountant, he mentioned something about most people with income over $70,000 won't get any FA. Shortly afterwards, I read something on College Confidential that households with income greater than $100,000 don't get anything. Now we are definitely over that, so what's up with the EFCs we're getting? Am I not to trust those numbers? For those of you who already have kids in college, did the NPCs align with reality when your kids were admitted? Also, as I can't fill out the FAFSA form yet, how did that compare to any EFCs you received from the colleges? TIA for any perspective on this for those who have BTDT.
