How recently did your kids go to school? As I said, this may be an emerging trend. I know my nieces and nephews have also had to file a Fafsa to get merit scholarships, at least the ones that are still in school. I confess it's not something I've paid attention to in the past.

I'm not rad, but did you miss this part of her post?

I also have over 30 years in higher Ed work including financial aid.

I would consider someone who has worked in the industry for the past 30 years, and is still doing that today, to be much more of an expert on this topic than one of two of us with our individual experiences. But that's just me.
