FAFSA and financial aid confusion?
Hey, so I was accepted to Georgetown early action and today they sent me an email letting me know that I need to fill out FAFSA and CSS by February 1st and they want the copies of parents income tax returns. My parents don't get their W2's and information until the last week of January and it's completely possible that they might not get it until January 30th. This would give us two days to do both these forms and we'd still be cutting it really close. Is that right? Like is that how its generally done?
I'm really confused since I've never done this, and my parents say that we can give predictions earlier. They also said that for my older brother the deadline was March 1st. How exactly am I supposed to do this? Can someone explain the process or is it this rushed for everyone?
