I thought I always understood this but now having doubts.
When you use an npc hosted by college board, as many colleges do, there is the question of number of siblings in household.
I always thought this was a birds eye view, so I answer 2, for me and my twin.
Number of siblings in college-- this is more ambiguous but following from the first answer in birds eye view, I always answer 2, check in college, age 17, because that's how old we are now and we will both be in college next year.
Is this right?
When using the Net Price Calculator, you do not include yourself in the siblings questions. If you have a twin, then you have 1 sibling, not 2 siblings. If you are an only child, you have Zero (0) siblings.
I hope that clarifies things.
The more siblings you have the lower the expected price your parents have to pay. So unfortunately lowering this number from 2 to 1 will make attending any school more, however it will more accurate to the net price your parents have to pay.
