I'm in that nice little plateau area where my family makes too much money to get any financial aid, but doesn't make enough money to put me through private college. We make a total of about $120,000 before taxes. Also, I have a sister who will be graduating soon and going off to grad school at about the same time i go to college. Do you think we will be able to get any aid? There's no way I'll be able to afford $40,000 a year, which is about what a year at GTown costs total. (tuition, room and board, books, living expenses) So, $120,000 before taxes and a sister going to grad school. Will I get anything?

They might, if you're lucky offer you a job.

Maybe even a loan, if they're really feeling compassionate.

Go for outside scholarships man, your only hope are those.
