Is it better to fill out FAFSA before or after you are accepted to optometry school?

    I have a feeling I should just submit it ASAP regardless of acceptance but not sure if that would negatively affect my aid. Anyone else put multiple schools on their FAFSA?

    My interviews so far don't start until March so I probably won't be accepted until mid-late March.

      I don't think applying for it now will affect your aid. I submitted mine when it opened up with all the schools I was seriously considering. Good luck!
