    I'm almost ready to submit, but I still can't figure out how to fill in the section that says academic scholarship %, need-based scholarship %, student loan %, etc.

    Has anyone figured this out?

    Please help!
    Thanks

      I think this is the disadvantaged section. If you didn't say your disadvangtaged or that the community you grew up in was medically underserved, you leave it blank (even though it shows up funny when you print it out). At least, that's what I did.
      I think if you're disadvantaged you say e.g. 30% of college paid by loans, 40% of college paid by academic scholarship, 30% of college paid by parents... or something like that.

        You can't fill it in unless you're disadvantaged. If you're disadvantaged then you will be prompted I think.
        Mine comes up with 0% for everything, because I didn't check disadvantaged.
        Hopefully I did this right, because I already submitted it <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

          What actually qualifies as disadvantaged??? anybody know that?

          I got scholarships for my first year; the rest 3 years my parents paid 40 percent while I paid 60. First generation of an immigrant family. Sound like I"m disadvantaged???
