What to put for my parent's income/networth?

Postby klipsch3212 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 8:57 pm

Hi everyone!

I'm not sure why, but the application asks for the net worth of my parents..

Their worth is at the maximum level of options stated in the application and I was wondering if it would be more advantageous to tell the truth or to put "unknown" in the box.

Thank you!

Just be honest. Your parents' financial situation does not affect your chances of admission. Berkeley just asks that because they love to talk about need-based aid.

If you want need-based aid, you'll be required to submit your parents' tax info anyway.
