Re: Stop working = More college financial aid?

Exactly. These are the sorts of examples you always see, accompanied by the conclusion that assets don't matter in the financial aid process. Sure they don't matter -- if you don't have any! The literature also makes the claim that 5-6% expected contribution is a pittance, but when you're looking at 5 kids X 4 Years X 6% = 120% it seems rather large.
