No decision on my app yet - should I still submit $ info?

Postby enidwexler » Fri Feb 01, 2013 12:15 am

I applied late this cycle (early January). Haven't heard back yet from any of my schools yet on whether or not I'm in. Should I still submit my FAFSA and other financial aid info (Need Access application, supplemental applications for need-based financial aid, etc.)? Or should I wait to hear back from admissions first?

My main concern is that if I submit my financial aid info now (before admissions has rendered a decision on my application), they will see that I'm a financially needy applicant, thus swaying their decision.

I don't think FAFSA sways your application. Most people need to take out loans for law school.

What about the Need Access application? Or supplemental need-based applications the schools request? Would those possibly affect my admissions chances if I submit them before receiving a decision?
