FAFSA and 10-school limit
« on: January 27, 2008, 03:54:46 PM »
On the FAFSA, they only let you list 10 schools to receive the info.  What if I'm applying to 10+ law schools?  I'd need financial aid wherever I end up!

How? I try to do an update and there is no option to add more schools or to resubmit it with different schools. Do I have to wait until the first one is completely processed?

Resubmit with different schools. I don't think you need to wait, but make sure you confirm that with someone else.

Unless you have really low scores, you really should limit your self to 10 schools maz to apply too.

This is horrible advice.

Well I suppose those with a 3.9 or 170+ (in addition to someone really low) could reasonably apply to 10 or more schools.

Personally, I applied to 9 schools.

On one of the law school websites (can't remember which one though) they said to submit it for the first 10, wait until it is complete, sent to the law schools, and you get the SAR. Then you need to edit and resubmit it to send to the other law schools. It takes a few weeks.

If you change the schools and resubmit before the results have been sent to the first set of schools, they might never get the information.

Make sure to keep deadlines in mind when you're choosing which ones to submit FAFSA for first.

You can also call FAFSA and they'll process the request for additional schools.

Just be sure to have the school codes handy when you call.
