Where do you current students reside? I have lived on my own for awhile so I have actual furniture and belongings (so no LC for me). Any suggestions for great housing (and places to stay away from)?

Duke forgotten...lol.

But seriously, yeah, that wouldn't work for me. And just saw that after years of not requiring parent info, UVA wants it this year. WTH?! If I get a decent package from Mich based on my own finances...it will definitely move up on my list.

Thanks for your response as well. I've been supporting myself since 04 so I may only have 4 tax returns to show. Hopefully CM is right that my parents' info isn't needed. I had issues with that too in UG and don't feel like dealing with them for their returns.

I understand what you guys are saying...believe me I do, but I'm still worried. I guess I'll just get my fafsa/fin aid forms in and see what happens...

Uh...I care honey, that's why I asked...lol

Thanks for your response though. I have a full ride at Illinois which isn't really on my radar but is still nice to have. I understand the prestige thing but I had issues with finances in UG (worrying about how things would get paid) and I know well enough not to make the same mistakes. Academic and financial issues don't mix. Money definitely has to play a part in my choice unfortunately.

I'm applying for a few outside schollys to so maybe that will help...ughh...I hate this...

So how generous is Michigan with (non Darrow) merit aid and how hard is it to get? I didn't even expect to be admitted so I'm not holding my breath.

I have Ivy UG debt (my parents were too poor to write a check for tuition and apparently made too much money for grants) and I'm debt adverse. Sadly, I'm also a prestige whore so its hard for me to turn down a T14.

I'm also not straight out of UG and have managed to hold down a job and take care of myself, so I'm guessing my EFC will be atrocious. I'm hoping Mich will help me afford this :(
