Well, it's finally happened. The college applications have been submitted, the acceptance (and rejection) letters have arrived. My kids are working harder than ever and so are the parents!

For my DD- it was actually a wash.

Hugs, I know that one member's DD that is a senior actually did find this out, she got a lot more aid to a small private school then she did the public U in their state she had applied to.

We are on our way there next year, will be interesting to see how everything does shake out. ODD has her heart now set on a public U out of state who is recruiting her to their collegiate athletic team, and I would love for her to be able to go there, but I am afraid that the cost is going to be way more than we can bear. Those are definitely when the tough decison really start.

You are not alone at all! There's been a very similar conversation happening on the Parents of College Students board this week regarding student loans. I wish it was easier for our kids to get financial aid. It seems as if we (as a society, that is) should be making it easier for those who want to better themselves through higher education.
