CCS/Profile questions

it says to put "0" where the questions are not applicable but it doesnt say to do that on every section. is it okay to leave it blank? i've put "0" in some sections and left the subsections blank since it doesnt apply.

also, it won't let me put in the 45 cents for my the rent/mortgage slot. they don't want decimals so i'm assuming that i should round up not down.

    Put "0" if it is applicable. If it doesn't apply to your situation OR the instuctions tell you to leave it blank, then leave it blank. Yes, round up or down to the nearest dollar for all entries.

    I just finished my profile. Wondering if there is any advantage to sending it in now or waiting. We are not ED for any colleges. Kills me how much it costs. I don't want to even know how much we have already spent on prep books, app fees, etc.

    we sent our profile in - in november- since it gives you a handy dandy form to help with the FAFSA which you can finish Jan 1st

    yes I agree it is expensive- D college is even more expensive than Harvard- but who wants to retire anyway :)

    We just sent our Profile on Wednesday. I did not notice the handy dandy form!! I will surely want to use it as we do the FAFSA!
