First you have to identify candidate schools, then you have to see if you can afford them (with or without aid, as the case may be). Which is why I was hoping for some resource that looked at aid first (since there's no point in looking at a $40K per year college if there's little aid).

You won't really know what kind of financial aid package you get unless you apply and are admitted. Some schools promise to meet the families full financial need, based on their Expected Family Contribution.
