Ahhh sent FAFSA/CSS too late!!!

<p>Ahh ok so I just sent FAFSA and CSS TODAY, and I only saw that Caltech had a deadline of 2 days ago just now!! Will I still get aid????</p>

<p>I'd give them a call, but I doubt they will care. I don't think they could possibly review all the forms in a week.</p>

<p>I sent my CSS profile like a month late, and that seemed to be fine. Unfortunately, didn't do me too much good anyway.</p>

<p>Uh oh, I haven't even started mine yet and my mom just left for a two-week trip. This TOTALLY slipped my mind. With so much to do, finaid was the last thing I was thinking about. What should I do?</p>

<p>Call the finaid office ASAP and let them know the situation. They're great people and usually are able to work something out.</p>

<p>Ben do international students need to fill out FAFSA as well?because on the application it says "If you want to be considered for need-based financial aid, you must fill out the International Student Financial Aid Application and the International Student Supplemental Form."</p>


<p>FAFSA is only for U.S. Citizens</p>

<p>For your acceptance decision, does Caltech send out email or letter or both?</p>

<p>Letter, no email.</p>

<p>when will Caltech send out email/letter to inform that your application is complete?</p>

<p>I have the same question as HopefulDove actually,coz I haven't gotten any confirmation yet (mailed apps on Dec 31th)</p>

<p>I don't understand FAFSA. You can only send it to six schools. What am I supposed to do for the other schools I applied to??</p>

<p>There is a SAR form that can be sent to extra schools, but I think they are sent a bit later. I applied EA and forgot to complete my CSS until like a month ago, but they were very fast about sending me my aid and I got it a week ago. Yay!</p>

<p>any update on the RA application pool of Caltech?</p>

<p>My parents just got divorced. Do I need to redo FAFSA or any parts of my application?</p>

<p>If you're applying to more than 6 school, you complete the FAFSA & list the 1st 6 schools you're applying to & then you replace the schools with the next 6 schools on your list, etc. Remember, if/when you need to make changes/corrections, you will have to make it for ALL the schools again as well in a similar procedure.
You can talk with your HS guidance counselor about how a divorce affects your FAFSA & what needs to be done (if you're in college, ask the financial aid office).</p>
