I'm trying to do some digging. Someone recently told 1poorlady that if 1poorkid has any cash in her savings that it will affect her chances for scholarships and other aid. I would think they would look at ME (and 1poorlady) on the assumption that we would be supporting her as much as we could. I mean, if Romney's kids had empty accounts would they really be eligible for more aid than some inner-city kid who managed to save a few bucks? That doesn't make sense to me (but that doesn't mean it isn't true!). I would think family finances would be the main factor, not whether or not the kid could save money.

And, unlike Romney, I can't hide my meager assets. I'm living in a big chunk of them.

Any info would be appreciated.
