When filling out FAFSA and adding schools, some schools seem to have their school of medicine separate from the actual school, like Michigan. Others only come up with one school when I search (like WashU). Are others having similar experiences? Do some schools handle it all in a central system and others not?

I think that you are correct- some schools do it centrally and others have a separate code for the med school. To be sure, I would check the financial aid portion of the med school website to see what they say. The ones I entered had their fafsa code listed.

Good luck :)

I think what other people have done is to submit their top 6 schools, then wait a while and change them and resubmit. Apparently, each time you change them, they get resent, so the schools will get them at least once (if that makes sense).

Just hearsay though

you can add more than 6 schools...you can call in and have them added, or do it on-line.

a lot of schools/med schools have separate codes, while others only have 1 fafsa code for the entire school system. The privates, more often than public schools, tend to have separate codes for the med schools, while the publics tend to have 1 code. this isn't the rule though...ucla med has it's own, while davis and san diego don't. if you can't find a specific code, just post it on sdn and i'm sure somebody will post.

The priority deadline for FAFSA is March 1st. I'm not sure what that entitles you to, though. You can send it in after that, but I certainly wouldn't wait until June. Try to get it in ASAP so the schools can send you their fin aid packages.
