Well, I can tell you what a really BAD EFC is, because I just filled out my FAFSA: $17,270. This is almost exactly 1/2 of my take home pay for 2005. I guess they just assume either you live like a student (or monk) already or you will sell your house and have the money that way. I am really glad I do not rent or I would be unable to even consider law school. As it is, selling my house and car might get me close ... tell me again about those LSAT whore TTT schools with lots of money!!
