Same and because my income went up after my daughter headed to college and mine were only in at the same time for two of the years and I could run the calcs, I never did a FAFSA.

After this year's results, I'm done doing the FAFSA, but there's only one more year I'd have to do one anyhow.

I initially did one to at least see if they'd get anything, and because I did know that my job was iffy and thought that when I did get laid off, at least I would have the option of calling the school with the change of status. I could not do that if I hadn't done the FAFSA to start, so for that, it was still worth hedging my bets.

I did go back and forth on if I should bother at all because I knew they wouldn't get anything - which is a very nice side-effect of having saved up for their college - but figured that I didn't have anything to lose and everything to gain by at least submitting it in case the situation changed. This is something, I think, that folks should consider when on the fence about doing the paperwork.

I do have to say that I'm glad I won't have to do it again.
