    hey.

    One school that placed me on their waitlist sent me the financial aid forms to fill.
    I found this pretty useless because they are atleast 50 waitlisted students and it doesn't make a lot of sense to post packages with tons of papers to fill when you are not even sure to get in.

    I think If you like the school you applied to , then go ahead and fill out all the forms you can. If you get accepted, you may be one step ahead.

    I was also asked to fill out financial aid forms at a school where I'm waitlisted. They said this ensures that if you DO get in off the waitlist, they'll be able to get you a package very quickly. Seeing as this is my first-choice school, I did it. If you think you'd go there if accepted, I think it's worth filling out the forms. And even if it's a remote possibility, it's better to be safe than sorry. Otherwise you might end up with $50k in bank loans during your first year! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I had one school (USC) that kept sending me financial aid forms even though I was rejected w/o interview. Talk about useless! :rolleyes:

    luckymed are you talking about USC?

    Your topic reads strangely to me.

    Anyhow, I got a packet for financial aid today for USC. I interviewed in November and haven't heard anything since.

    I guess I'll take the time to fill it out since I am still waiting for a school to respond to me. Any one know that they see if pple fill out the packet as a sign of interest for the school? oh well, whatevers. I'll be a good puppet and stop asking questions now :rolleyes: <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    luckymed's question just got cut off, Hero. He is asking whether or not he should fill out FA forms to schools he is not accepted to yet.

    I think the answer is yes. :) That way as soona s you are accepted, they can start processing your FA info. :D Then you'll get more money since the early bird cathes the worm (sometimes)
