One of the biggest mistakes college bound students and their families make is that they don't apply for financial aid because they don't think they will qualify. But we have got news for you: EVERYONE should apply for financial aid for college. If you think your family makes too much money or somehow doesn't fit the "financially needy" persona, you still could be eligible to receive aid. Use every opportunity you can to get funds to pay for college. You have nothing to lose by submitting an application!
