It's like a private version of FAFSA (which you have to pay for) required, in addition to FAFSA, by some schools. There's a lot more estimating of future expenses and income on it.


Ah, I see. Thanks!

Bumping this real quick...so as dswimmer was saying, I'm not going to get any $$ from my parents for LS. Can I just tell a school that I am in contact with my parents but they are uncooperative and refuse to give me any of their tax information (even if it wasn't true)? I mean how can they check that, right?
Aside from this being a lie, would this be a viable option?

"I do not believe there is a double standard of morality." - James E. Faust

"There is a vague popular belief that lawyers are necessarily dishonest. I say vague, because when we consider to what extent confidence and honors are reposed in and conferred upon lawyers by the people, it appears improbable that their impression of dishonesty is very distinct and vivid. Yet the impression is common, almost universal. Let no young man [or woman] choosing the law for a calling for a moment yield to the popular belief—resolve to be honest at all events; and if in your own judgment you cannot be an honest lawyer, resolve to be honest without being a lawyer." - Abraham Lincoln

a simple "don't lie" would have been enough

I have a basic Need Access question:

Is it locked after you submit it somewhere? Can you edit it, read it, or not even see it?

You can see, read, edit, and resubmit. I changed something on mine and resubmitted to NeedAccess and got a confirmation email that I'd submitted again.

Even if it were the truth, I don't think it would work. I think for them to make an exception to requiring parental info it would have to be something like: My dad went out for a pack of cigarettes when I was 2 and never came back. I have no idea where he is.
