Nevermind I was at http://www.fafsa.com rather than http://www.fafsa.ed.gov

Guess I have to fill everything out all over again

lol, that's quite a scam. I wonder if they'd actually file your form for that $100, at least.

Yeah, I guess they do file it for you, and dont worry they check it for errors lol

When I finished filing it out a big thing poped up and told me there was 1 error that was going to hurt the amount of money I was going to receive

Basically means: Lucky you are filing with us because we will check it, although how could you screw up basically coping numbers off a w2 form lol

There was no section to put the loans I took out/have. Is this normal?
