    This may be a stupid question, but here it is: med schools say "fill out the FAFSA for this year, even before you are positive you will be accepted." But what if I want to defer an acceptance? Should I still fill out the FAFSA this year?

    In other words, should I fill out the FAFSA even though I am going to defer an acceptance if I get accepted?

    Do you know for sure where you're going and if they allow deferrals? I've heard that it varies widely from school to school.

    Yes, I am pretty sure I know where I might be, and the schools do offer deferrals...I guess I should just fill it out and have wasted my time, rather than not fill it out and be in trouble. ;)

    Why not call the school's financial aid office and ask?
