I read somewhere that as a Canadian, I should still fill out a FAFSA. Has anyone start doing this?

Not sure, I think for one you have to prove to them that you can pay for 3 years of law schoool.

Why would you have to fill in a FAFSA for that?

FAFSA is only for US citizens.  This is from the DOE's website-

Hey Geo.  Thanks for taking the time to look into FAFSA for Canadian students.

Can you elaborate a little bit more on what you mean when you say you have to "submit alternate forms to schools"?  FAFSA forms or individual financial aid forms (unique to each school)?
