Using a EFC(expected family contribution)calculator to estimate the cost of our kids' college education, I am a little disappointed that our home equity, and other investments raise our EFC so high.
We have a little family business that is very efficient so that we are able to save and invest in SA stocks. We would like to be more elgible for scholarships. Is there a way not to be so penalized for being so frugal?
Thanks, John

Your question is probably more of a question for the "Paying for College" board: http://boards.fool.com/paying-for-college-100157.aspx
