I am under the impression that everyone (graduates) get the full subsidized and unsubsidized amounts. I did.
does anyone really know how the FAFSA affects your student loans that you qualify for?my EFC is 42539does that mean they expect my estimated family contribution to be $42,539 towards my living expenses for the year? how am i supposed to come up with that cash when i'm quitting my job to attend law school?
I'm a married nontrad with a little higher EFC than you have. I didn't get the full subsidized amount (but close to it... like 85% of it, if I remember correctly), and the rest is made up for with unsubsidized Stafford.
