Hey everyone I have a question... What if a student was able 2 pay off their 1st year of med/dental school in cash (with help from family members) but would pay for the next 3 years of school with loans.. would the student need 2 fill out any fafsa or other papers/forms about $ during his 1st year ?? I would appreciate any responses thank u :clap:

If you are really set on spending that cash on tuition, then no, you don't need to fill out FAFSA. However, olanzapine is right about the subsidized loans.

Even the unsubsidized loans are a good deal and you might be better off taking that cash and using it as a downpayment for a house/condo to save youself some rent and perhaps make some money if the value of the property goes up (as it usually does).

yup. it's not neccessary to fill out the fasfa on years that you don't want anything.
