Thanks for both your replies

My primary concern is, merit/need aid is ultimately at their discretion so are they likely to reduce aid if I'm maxing out my 401k? ie. This applicant can stop contributing to his 401k and pay us full rate. Again, I am looking at years 2,3,4,5,6,7, etc... and am assuming I will still try to max out my 401k all those years if it doesn't penalize me with aid awards.
