I have a couple questions. They only allow you to put 6 schools on the application, however I need to place 8 schools on there because I am interviewing late and haven't heard a decision from most by the deadline. Will I be able to attain aid later if one of the schools I didn't put on the application ends up being the one I attend?

Also, if I am independent and I add a parents information will this just be used for scholarships? If the income of the parent was only $19K would that help me land more need based funding? Do we have to update out parents information every year?

You can add schools later as needed. Being accepted late may change your eligibility for some aid if the school gives out money on a first-come, first-served basis, but you will always be eligible for federal Stafford loan regardless of when you start or when you submit the FAFSA.

As far as a low parental income, this may make you eligible for need-based aid.
