Yes it's the same. Many have the same deadlines as the state deadlines. Some schools have different dates. I suggest you send a FAFSA to all the schools you haven't been rejected to yet.

well, the answer really isn't "yes" since the deadline isn't march 2 for all schools. the deadlines vary and are school-specific, as you otherwise suggest.

Agreed for two reasons. First, many schools' deadlines are fast approacing or have already arrived (my FAFSA was actually due yesterday!). Second, if schools are wondering whom to accept and whom not to, it's conceivable that they might look to see who has sent in their paperwork in order to determine continuing interest. Perhaps you might ask the adcoms on the "semisolicited thread" stickied to the top of the page whether this could be a factor?

I know you had to file before March 1 to be eligible for all scholarships at my state school (Maryland). You would still be eligible for loans if you filed after March 1, but not for the state scholarships and grants. Not sure how this works at all schools, but earlier is generally better when it comes to FAFSA.
