I looked back about 6 months or so and didn't see this question answered (though I wouldn't be surprised if it was answered at some point in the past).

What is the best way to check out available financial aid? Or, perhaps I should ask, what's the best way to find schools that are more likely to have generous aid packages?

Details: daughter is US citizen of Asian descent, National Honor Society, lives presently in Arizona (I'm told some schools want regional diversity, so a school back east might favor a western student), taking lots of AP classes. Family is middle-class (so we can't claim poverty).

The University of Arizona is a fine school, but I wouldn't want her to go there just because she can get in-state tuition. Especially if there are other options that would cost about as much after aid packages.
