We are looking at schools for our oldest right now and have a FA question:

We do not need financial aid for #1 but will need it for #2 and #3 when they are ready to hopefully go to the same school. Is there less liklihood of getting financial aid for #2 and #3 if we don't even apply for #1? Or have families been able to receive aid the more kids they send to private school as long as they apply at the K entry point?

Schools do factor in siblings when deciding how much aid to provide. I would say just apply if and when you feel you need aid. Did you see the scenarios I posted on another thread?

That should help you get a sense of what you might qualify for.
