I "intended" to apply for financial aid, though I am now not...

<p>Does this have any negative effect? Some of my schools, like Duke and Brown, allowed me to change the option but others dont.</p>

<p>If the schools are need blind, the admissions folks don't even KNOW about your financial aid applications at all. </p>

<p>If you don't send in the financial aid application forms, the schools will NOT give you aid, and you will be a "full pay" at the schools. </p>

<p>The big question...does your family have the financial resources to pay the full cost of attendance at the places you've applied to? If so...no problem.</p>

<p>thanks for the answer, i hope so</p>

<p>I would have the conversation to make sure they CAN afford it.</p>
