Harvard still requires 50% parental support at age 30, sorry to say. 75% at 29. 

Not if you meet the 7-step independence test.

3. a lot of salaries just got bumped up to $145k, so paying off is that much easier

Were they bumped to increase employees' real disposable income, or because of cost of living increases that ate up what people were previously making?

The person you are referring to meant 7-year independence test, meaning, you need to have been independant from your parents for at least 7 years which means:

cannot have lived with them for more than 6 months in past 7 years, and could not received monetary support from them (some amount) total in past 7 years...its on the HLS site somewhere

yeah thats what i meant sorry for being unclear.
so basically if you are 30, and you moved out of home from age 23 or earlier and have not been getting monetary support from them (e.g. for tuition, or car payments, etc.) their finances WON'T affect your financial aid.

this is in contrast to the poster who said ypur parental financial info would be required if you are 45 and have kids of your own. that might be true at some places, but not at harvard. unless you and your kids are still living off of your parents' money when you are 45.
