Okay, I'll get right to the point: I really want to go to Boston College (or University). However, both colleges will cost near $60,000 or more. So my question is, what's the best possible scenario for government aid? (This is assuming I'm accepted.) I know I'll get some scholarships. I take all honors/AP classes and have a 94 unweighted GPA. I'm heavily involved in extra-curriculars, but not athletics. I also live with a parent on a fixed income from Social Security. I can't even afford state schools, but my dream is to go to Boston--I absolutely love it there. However, I know I cannot possibly take on that much in loans and stay afloat as a teacher (this is, again, assuming I even get hired). I know there's no determining this, but just so I don't get my hopes up too much, what's the best scenario that I will get from the college/government?
