But...I need to send my FAFSA to More than 10 Schools...

And for some reason, I can't seem to find the answer to this conundrum.

When I called FAFSA, they told me to just put down up to 10 schools. And then, as I was accepted and/or rejected, I could make changes to an already-processed aid application.
So my advice: Put down the ten you think are going to work out.

Check your schools' websites. ASAP, basically. Most have a Feb or March priority deadline.

you put your 10 schools in. wait for your SAR. once you get your SAR you do the FAFSA again with the remaining schools. or so I'm told.

...SAR?

I'm assuming this isn't a singular form of the disease.

Yes, this 100% it'll take a few days for you to get your SAR once your FAFSA has been submitted. I just did this last week, can vouch for the process.

This. SAR = Student Aid Report, I think. You'll get an E-mail telling you that your FAFSA has been processed and your SAR was ready. Then you edit your FAFSA and resubmit it with the edits, and wait all over again.

I applied to 30 schools, so I had to do this twice. Just pick 10 schools and submit. It'll take a couple days, then once you have confirmation it's processed, edit and resubmit with the next 10. Sucks, but until they change the way they do it, you have to work it this way.

EDIT: Also it would help if I hit submit before I go back to watching Dollhouse.
