FAFSA- do i add schools even if i haven't been accepted yet?

Postby Mike088 » Wed Jan 19, 2011 8:13 pm

I've only gotten one decision so far, from Santa Clara and i have added its school code on FAFSA. Should i go ahead and add other schools to even though i haven't received a decision yet?

Apologies for the ignorance. Thanks in advance.

It is best to get it to all schools as soon as possible. They will have it on file if/when you are accepted and will be able to review it right away (as opposed to being accepted and then waiting 3 days- a week for it to process).

Yes add other schools. You have space for 10 of them.

And when you have more than ten you do the first batch, wait to process, and resend to a second batch, right?
