I am going to get my W-2 from last year this evening, just a few days before the 2/1 deadlines.  So, for example, does this mean that I cannot apply for financial aid from a school like Michigan unless I manage to complete my tax return overnight?  Sorry to ask what may seem like a stupid question, but the time period between receipt of necessary tax information (end of January for some) and the deadline for applying for financial aid for some schools seems extremely small - am I missing something?

Thanks

You can file the FAFSA with estimates of all the numbers you need.  After you file your taxes, you can go back to submit corrections and update the information.  The corrections can be filed at any time after most schools' deadlines.

thanks for starting the thread jason and everyone else for adding to it!!!!!

for those schools that accept need acess and fafsa, do we need to file both, or can we just file one or the other?  (I'm trying to do everything through one source if I can).

arh, see my post in the other thread. let me know if you have any other questions about it, ive read up more on this stuff than i would like to admit.

Important Notes: 1) Where a school did not give a deadline, I put the deadline as February 1st;
----cut -----
University of Michigan
Deadline: 2/01/2006
FAFSA: Yes
FAFSA Code: E00506
Need Access: Yes
School Specific Forms/Ppwk: 2005 Tax Return; 1st pp of 2000-2004 return for any/all years you claim to have been "Independent"


Sorry - To clarify - does this mean that Michigan did not give a deadline, or that you saw somewhere something due today (sorry to be obtuse, just checking here.)

Here's a quote from the Michigan website:

Is there a financial aid deadline for first-year law students?
No, there is not a financial aid deadline for first-year law students; you can apply right up to the start of the school year, if you wish. Of course, the sooner we have your completed application, the sooner we can issue your award letter. Our continuing students, however, have a firm financial aid application deadline in April of each year.

(I sent in my FinAid docs to Emory, as they had a 2/1 deadline, but I thought all others were 2/15 or later.  I just got my w2s and have a really busy day at work ahead of me.)

Do I need to do this today, I guess is the question...

Thanks!!

Oh, and really really great thread! Thanks for starting it.

I couldn't find a deadline for Michigan.

And would you believe that I started this thread how many weeks ago and I still, myself, have only managed to getting around to doing the FAFSA?  I guess part of me is unhappy about having to pay to apply for aid (it's only $15 per school, but it's still annoying).

Does BU require the Need Access? I couldn't find it just now when I was selecting schools to add on needaccess.org.

Thanks.

Sorry, that was a mistake.  BU is CSS Profile.
