    Hey all... just wondering what everyone else out there has been told to do about federal student loans if waitlisted? I haven't contact my school yet, but wanted to see if anyone else knew of what to do.

    Louisville told us to go ahead and do FAFSA. MCG didn't tell me anything one way or the other.

    fill out the fafsa, list all the schools that you might accept you. if you get accepted then just update it with the school that you are attending.

    I would fill out FAFSA and list the school or schools you are waitlisted at.

    Fill it out for the possible options. No penalty involved in doing that if you don't get in and better safe than sorry.

    Fill out the FAFSA and send it to all the schools you are waitlisted at.
    it doesnt cost you anything to have them sent to those schools. that a way if you get in they already have your info.

    You don't need to update it. Just enter the schools that you are waitlisted at. If you get in, great. If you don't, it doesn't matter (in terms of the FAFSA, of course).
