I am married and will be attending a graduate program in the fall. I make like 30k a year and my wife makes 25 k a year and we have been working for 1.5 years. Since i am married my parental info. is not taken into account for the EFC. Why is my EFC still around 16K---doesn't that seem kinda high, my wife and I are pretty poor!

--mpp or others any ideas???

No, that EFC is about right for a household earning 55,000. It assumes that you will still be earning that 30,000 while in graduate school. If you will not be earning that money anymore, be sure that the financial aid office know this. They may have a form that adjusts for this.
