I guess i'm not making myself clear:
All of our students are independent for federal aid purposes (by virtue of the fact that they are in graduate school). Many are also financially independent of their parents. However, Fordham has limited funds and it looks at family financial strength of all of the students who apply, regardless of age and marital status. Fordham requires parental and household information in order to be considered for Fordham Law financial aid (both grants and loans). Please be certain to complete the entire application (all 43 questions) if you want to be considered for Fordham aid. Should you have special circumstances, Q. 44 allows you to explain any information which would affect the you or your parents' financial situation.
