Hello all. I have a couple financial aid questions.
I have been accepted to three schools so far, two of which have sent me a merit scholarship. I am waiting to hear back from a few more. My question is what should I be doing right now as far as financial aid? Should I be filling out the FAFSA and sending it out?? Am I behind on this?
My issue with the FAFSA is that I am a nanny. I have been a nanny for 5 years, so I do not have a tax return. Should I fill it out with my parents info? I am 24... almost 25. I have one tax return for this tax season from a side job I did for a little bit, but did not work a lot of hours for them this past year.
Besides the FAFSA, anything else I need to fill out? I am waiting to hear back from other schools and also waiting for any other financial aid from these schools that I might be receiving.
Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks again!

Almost every school requires FAFSA to be filled out to be considered for need-based aid, but you should check the individual schools' websites for any other forms or requirements they might have. From my experience every school is a little different when it comes to financial aid.
