I HATE the needaccess form. It makes absolutely no sense. My parents are divorced and I'm not sure where I should be filling out what. And to make matters worse, my mom is disabled and I support her 100% financially. She lives with me and my husband and I have no idea how to account for that.
Um, tag.Man this is gonna suck to fill out.
I'm having a really hard time with all the 2007 estimates they want filled in. How am I supposed to know how much financial aid I anticipate receiving next year -- isn't this why I'm filling out the wretched form in the first place? Also, the way they have things broken down into academic year and summer categories is confusing because I'm going to be leaving my job about halfway through the summer but I'm not exactly sure when, so I really don't know how much my earnings for June through either mid-July or early August will be. Yet I have to plug in both my estimated earnings for the year and my estimated summer earnings, even though the summer earnings will be included in the whole amount and I don't know what either of those amounts are. I won't know how much student health insurance will be until the school tells me, yet they require an estimate of that -- my current insurance through work is awesome and cheap, so I don't know what it's like anywhere else. And on, and on, and on.Is anyone else experiencing this, or am I just particularly dumb about this stuff? This form is horrible and the website doesn't give any real instructions about anything. Argh. Help!?!
