Am I too late to start? I just got into school a few weeks ago and I'm just now starting the process and waiting for a FSA ID.

Oh jeez. I didn't think I would get in this cycle so I didn't pay attention to it. Am I totally screwed?

You should contact your financial aid advisor at your school.

I will when they return from break. I just was able to submit my FAFSA, does that mean I'm good?

Not necessarily. Your school's financial aid office determines your eligibility and will reward you the direct loan (at a minimum) if they are able to process the FAFSA. You need to find out when they stop processing financial aid applications.

Will there be grants awarded other than loans?

This is completely dependent upon your school. Most schools have spent a good portion of their institutional funding at such a late date, but it's possible that your school sets money aside for late accepts. You need to work with your financial aid office directly if you have questions.

First, congratulations on your acceptance. Second, fill out the FAFSA ASAP, and call your school's financial aid coordinator. Most schools have a dedicated coordinator for the dental school, so call student services and make an appointment as soon as you can (before your break ends...)

Thanks for the replies

I spoke to financial aid and they made it seem like no big deal - I guess those deadlines are for unguaranteed money and grad loans are available 24/7.
