So I am still claimed by my parents on their income taxes as a dependent, and knowing their income I am 99% sure I will receive no need based aid from any schools. I definitely want to be considered for merit based aid at all schools, but iirc the FAFSA is not needed in order to be considered. Basically my questions is whether or not there would be any reason to fill out the FAFSA if there is essentially no chance of receiving need based aid (idk if it is still needed for anything else, does it help with merit based aid, etc)
