I didn't apply as disadvantaged, but I'm curious as to whether I should have. My parents decided after my freshman year that I shouldn't go to college, so I had myself declared financially independent and supported myself through college. Does this count? It doesn't appear anywhere on my application, and I'm wondering if it's at all appropriate to bring up at an interview. If I get in (no news yet), will I still have to put my parents' income down on my financial aid statement? They won't be contributing. Any thoughts?
