Lets say I will get $15,000.00 per year from Fafsa to go to a private college. I need another $25,000.00 per year to pay for the school.
Can I then opt not to fill out the aid forms of the particular college i chose to attend (because I dont want loans or work study) and get the money from my wealthy aunt instead? Or will Fafsa make me as well take aid from the private college i will attend?
