I've noticed that there are alot of deadlines placed on completion of FAFSA and the CSS &/or Need Access. What if you're still pending by the time the deadline rolls around?
Are financial aide applications only submitted after acceptance?
I had wanted to get my FAFSA form out to my schools as soon as possible. But I sure don't want to pay for the CSS/Need Access service until I know I've at least been accepted.
And on that same note, if you get waitlisted somewhere, do you go ahead and go through the financial aide application process while waitlisted? If the financial aide deadline passes and THEN you get accepted, is there any aide still available?
Am I looking at this all wrong? Am I missing something here? I thought the LSAC and school fees were enough. I wasn't expecting another $15 for each one. And I can't even figure out what CSS costs without settin up an account.
Ok, this is starting to freak me out. I don't want it screwing up my budget I have for the application process. Can anyone help me out here?
