Who's filling out the FAFSA at the stroke of midnight Jan 1 2012?

So last year I was one of the paranoid seniors waiting on my laptop for FAFSA to open -- oh yeah, and the new year. They say financial aid is first come first serve, so who'll be waiting for the ball to drop so they can fill out their FAFSA instead of having their New Year's Kiss?

Anyone get great FA after filling the FAFSA out so early (to those who applied to UCs/CSUs as HS seniors)? I know I didn't last year. Does filling out the application so early really give you the best FA? Or, will your FA mostly count on your/your parent's income?
