Parent's marital status...

<p>Does this effect how they judge you in any way? I really don't want sympathy. Is this just a paperwork-y question?</p>

<p>It's just paperwork as far as admission goes.</p>

<p>However, it can be critical for financial aid. If you have anything other than the "standard" one mom and one dad still married and living together in the same home where you also live, you may want to take your specific parental and residential issues to the experts at the Financial Aid forum. No judgment over their either, just expert advice on who has to complete which forms.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks! I don't need financial aid, so that won't be a problem.</p>
