My EFC is around 15k because of the savings from my job, so I don't think I will qualify for any need-based aid.
If anyone was also wondering, the answer is "yes." I talked to Hastings, and the guy said Need Access isn't technically required, but it can't hurt (except the $30 fee) to try. If they only get my FAFSA, they will only consider me for federal aid. If anyone can confirm this, it would be appreciated.
UCLA requires both FAFSA and needaccess, but I think they only rely on the information provided by needaccess to determine financial aid gifts.
