    I'm crossing my fingers that by some miracle I get an interview at UCLA and I have two more interviews coming up at New Jersey and Midwestern. Should I include all those schools on the FAFSA form?

    ain't it a bit early? i don't plan on sending mine in until i file my taxes/my W2's come back from my work places... until then... i should kno which school i'm going to for sure and the school would have given me all the FA packets n stuff. But if you wish i don't see why it would hurt to have all those schools on the FAFSA form. I don't think they see what schools you send it to... but that's just my theory... i'm not sure if they do or not...

    Maybe I am slow here.. but I wasn't aware that you could fill out a fafsa and receive aid for grad/dental school.

    Is it just the same FAFSA I filled out while in undergrad?

    Are there any guidelines about what one could hope to get? Is it difficult to get any aid?

    Thanks :)

    Most dental schools have info regarding financial aid on their web site. UDM also sent detailed info w/their acceptance letter. UofM didn't send the info w/acceptance, but it was given at the interview.

    I already filled my FAFSA out and they already processed it!! woohoo
    You are supposed to put in all the schools you are considering, even if you haven't been accepted to them yet.

    I understand that some ppl do the tax thingy and probably can't fill it out yet. Don't worry, the deadline is still far away.

    I wish everyone the best!! Take care and happy new yr!:hardy:

    i was told at most interviews to submit your FAFSA based on last years tax info and when you have your taxes done to go in and make the proper changes. From what I've gathered, most schools give their aid out on a first come first serve basis and as long as you submit your form early, you will be considered even if you have to make some changes later on. I will be attending Maryland and they have a March 1st priority deadline in order to be eligible for "all available financial aid".

    I called FAFSA and talked to a person there who told me I should just estimate my information for 2008.
