loan/FAFSA question

    Does anyone know if med schools will grant "work-study" funds for med school students? Morever, if it only a very small amount will be granted, will it make more sense not to apply for it because they may decrease the amoutn of grant/loan you get based on the amount you're getting from "work-study"? Is there any way you can ask the financial aid office directly to change the loans to work-study AFTER filling FAFSA (i.e. you didn't tell them you're doing work-study at the time, but you ask them for permissions later)..

    Another unrelated question is...if you're unsure about what housing options you'll ultimately choose, which should you pick on the FAFSA??

    thanks much?
