So I'm filling out my financial aid info (late, I know) for Georgetown for instituional aid and I'm puzzled as to what to include. My mom is a dentist, which means we live pretty comfortably (my parents are separated and my mom pays for all my expenses), but I'm wondering if I should include her income tax return and her financial info for Georgetown's institutional aid. I'm pretty sure if I do I won't get much aid. She works really hard to support my brother and I so I want to take the financial burden of paying for med school off of her. Should I not include her info and bend the truth by saying that she doesn't pay for all my expenses? I put myself as "independent" on FAFSA but I included her financial info (a mistake?). Now I'm working on Georgetown institutional aid which includes grants and scholarships and such (need-based I believe), and thinking that maybe I should omit all her info to maximize my chances of getting a good amount of aid. Has anyone else been in this situation? Financial aid is so confusing!
