    So I'm looking even deeper into the whole FA process for a private school, and I notice something called the Profile. I remember dealing with it in HS while applying to college, but haven't heard about it since. Who has filed it, and what is it for?

    Free time? Sort of... but the deadlines are rapidly approaching.

    I have completed the CSS Profile form. It is only used by a few schools and is used to determine institutional aid. It's pretty painless after doing FAFSA--most of the same types of questions, but a little more detail. The only school I applied to that requires it is Wake Forest. Hope that helps.
