FAFSA makes you take a little quiz to determine if your parents' info in necessary. I included it on need access, but not on the FAFSA.

Yes, I know I've assigned myself the wrong gender on LSN. I apologize for offending the Francophones, but I'm not creating a whole new account to correct the error. Please stop leaving me messages.

The need access form (at needaccess.com) is separate from the FAFSA.  It is an additional form that is required by some law schools.  There's not too many that require it, and they tend to be the top schools (T20 for the most part).  You only need to worry about it if you're applying to one of those schools.

I am assuming they will say something if they want the need access form?
