Ok, so this shocked me a bit. I am used to having to report my parents on my FAFSA (they don't help with my school) and having an EFC of something like 30k a year. Now, I am 22 and going to law school next fall. The FAFSA told me I didn't have to report my parents. So, I reported only myself and my EFC went to 0!!!
Here is my question.
If this is the case for most graduate students (because of age), how can the law schools discern who needs aid (someone like me) and someone who's parents are still helping them with finances?
