hey guys
so i filled out my css in february, but i forgot to fill out fafsa. a lot of colleges that accepted me have told me to get it in asap, but am i in trouble? like, will still get aid when i fill it out (hopefully today)? i know it'll take some time but i was just wondering if it would affect my financial aid standing or even admissions status to colleges


p.s. excuse the stupid typo in the header. it's late and my shift key likes to stop working sometimes...

    Well, they are asking you to fill it out so that is a good sign. But you might suffer a bit when it comes to the school's free money. FAFSA is used as well for the Stafford, plus loan and work study eligibility.

    Get that FAFSA done TODAY....and make sure there is nothing else missing that the school requires for financial aid consideration.

    and since you're late, make sure to use the IRS loading tool so they won't come back and ask for verification.
