So, I'm thinking ahead to when I apply to law school next fall. I have never filled out a FAFSA as an UG. My pre-law advisor (who is pretty useless and whose judgment I do not trust) told me I need to fill one out prior to applying in order to be able to attract scholarship options within weeks of being accepted. Is this true, or do I not need the FAFSA to qualify for those scholarships - which I assume are usually performance-based?
Part II: When filling out the FAFSA prior to law school, should I claim as an independent even though I'm not? I know that once you're in graduate school you can claim independence, but technically I won't be at the time of filling it out. Thanks in advance for your responses!
