What to do about financial forms if apply now?
« on: October 14, 2005, 12:12:32 PM »
I've already submitted my apps, just waiting for LORs and LSAT score.  Should I wait and submit my financial apps when the 2006-2007 FAFSA comes out in January or should I just submit what I can now, noting that the FAFSA still needs to be completed?  I've heard that many schools offer scholarships with their acceptances, so I want to make sure that my schools know that I'm needy when they decide.

Thanks!

I agree with what RedZone said.  Plus, most schools require, in addition to the FAFSA, the Need Access form which, even if you can fill it out now (and I don't think you can), there is a charge per school.

So, while I'm VERY in need of Fin Aid, I'm not considering doing it until late January, when I can do it all and when hopefully I've heard something good from at least one school, or somethings bad from some schools so I know not to do a Need Access form for them.
