For both you and your parents, Need Access asks if you're basing your numbers on completed 2009 tax forms or if you're estimating for 2009.
I've missed the deadline for Vandy. I was bugging my parents forever to get their docs together and they just finished it now.
In a word or two, how tough and long is Need Access? I am frightened of filling it out I plan to do FAFSA this week or so. I assume once you complete Need Access, it goes straight to the schools. (ie it doesn't reach them weeks later, hence late)
hard, unless you happen to know the exact car payments of your parents, the make and model of their vehicles, and other such mundane details by heart.
