Schools that DS applied to that require a CSS PROFILE are U of Michigan (Ann Arbor), Rensselaer, U of Chicago, and MIT. Schools that do not are U of Minnesota, U of Washington, Colorado School of Mines, Case Western Reserve, and Princeton. Princeton has their own version of the CSS PROFILE that does not cost anything. Colorado School of Mines apparently does not require the FAFSA for merit aid, as DS already got an offer letter.

There does not appear to be any pattern to those that require it.

Too bad the University of Idaho is so rural (DS is tired of rural) and does not have a great reputation. By having above a 3.0 GPA, DS could attend almost free. It's the backup plan since the application deadline isn't until 1 Aug.

Personally, I'm hoping for just enough from U of Michigan to make it viable. Dept. of Nuclear Engineering only has about 120 students, so you get all the benefits of a super-small private college with all the resources of a major research institution.
