Me, I am very happy my parents paid for my schooling and didn't leave me with debt. It gave me more choices in life.

Exactly what we are doing. You appear to assume we will not. We've planned for it, and if we are still cut out of aid, so be it, but it will be interesting to see how our choosing to no longer work impacts our expected contribution. We wouldn't be retiring if we couldn't also pay for their education. Having put myself through school, I understand the benefits of graduating debt free. We've told them our paying for college is their inheritance. There may not be much left when we are done with this life.
