I was wondering how international JD applicants(non-resident aliens) are filling for financial aid..
some schools i applied to require separate form to be printed out and mailed to each schools, some schools don't. some schools say there will be absolutely no financial aid for international applicants and must show proof of financial resources for at least one academic year. some schools set deadline for financial aid application, some don't state it. it's quite tricky, different schools seem to have different things.
One specific school, in a financial aid application form, states that students complete a FAFSA(Free Application for Federal Student Aid), and send copy of student's and parents' 2007 federal tax returns, including all schedules and W-2s.
1. If my research is correct, international students(non-resident aliens) are not qualified for FAFSA. should i complete FAFSA? where do i complete it? website address?
2. Since i and my parents never worked in US, am i free from obligation to send copies of federal tax return? or do i send an alternative documents from the country i and my parents live in now?
3. what is W-2s?
