    After filling out the FAFSA, did anyone get a letter saying they don't qualify for Cal Grants because they'll be pursuing a professional/graduate (MD) degree in 2004-2005.

    What's the point of that letter? People don't get Cal Grants in med school, do they? The letter makes it seem like I had a chance to get Cal Grants but was somehow disqualified.

    These two statements mean the same thing. They're telling you that "people don't get Cal Grants in med school."

    I assume by filling out a FAFSA you are automatically put into queue for a Cal Grant. Since you're going to med school, they booted you out.

    I also could be totally mistaken.

  3. I didn't get that letter. Yes, its pointless though because didn't the FAFSA already state this information?

    I need to read up about financial aid again but basically, as med students we can only get loans from the government and grants/loans from our school, right? There's no such thing as grants for the government for med school is this correct?

    That's too bad cause I was getting massive federal grants for undergrand.

    yeah, I did. I just figured that the wonderful state computer doesn't know what it's doing.
