How long did it take any of you to receive the final financial aid forms after having to fill out the extra data on the website. AND do you have to wait for these forms before getting all the financial aid/loan stuff started? I'm just trying to get all my finances in order so I can start on house/apartment hunting.
To your first question, no one has gotten the final financial aid forms yet. According to the LLS website (LinkRemoved), "our office will finalize your awards and send you your Official Award Letter. We will begin to mail Official Award Letters in mid to late June 2008." For the second question, I was going to email the fin aid office to figure that out. I'm assuming our estimated financial aid will be our final financial aid, minus any huge mistakes you made on the FAFSA or any income you tried to hide. But I'm definitely interested in finding out if we can start applying for GradPLUS loans (or when we can start doing so).
I'm getting my done through CitiBank because that's who handled all my Ugrad loans. But about ALL Student Loans, wasn't that the company that just said that they weren't going to issue any more loans due to the economy? I remember some thread on here talking about it, but I can't remember what company it is.
