Out of curiosity, do you mean done with all the actual schools paperwork? How much more do I have to look forward to? I was under the impression it was Fafsa, a few forms for the school, and that was it. Am I incorrect?

I think I was overwhelmed due to the volume of schools I had to send stuff too. I had to do the FAFSA with my information for some schools, and then some wanted mine and my parents information on the FAFSA. So I had to change that - ended up needing to make corrections because my Mom had some issues with getting paperwork in order. I also needed to do the NeedAccess, which I also had to make corrections to. Then schools requested signed copies of tax returns from 2008 and 2009 and some wanted W2s (for me and parents). Then finally the individual school applications.

It just felt like a lot. Especially considering you can only submit to 10 at a time on Fafsa

Okay, thanks. So far, all I have done is the Fafsa, and I didn't submit any parental info. Haven't had to do anything else for the schools yet (though I'm sure some more paperwork is coming). Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything, since I haven't really had to do too much yet.

Thanks again, good luck!
