Is all we need to do for financial aid is submit FAFSA and Need Access? I want to make sure I did not forget anything.

Yes, that's all. If submitted before mid-February, you should have a complete financial aid package by the end of March.

Kemosabe, I don't believe any scholarship information has been released yet. The first complete financial aid packages will be coming out in March.

This video made me a lot more excited about UVA verses the other law schools on this channel. I've been spending my whole afternoon watching these.

You only need to do Need Access if you want to be considered for need-based aid, correct?

I believe so. However, I think all the scholarships they give are a combination of need and merit though. So to get any sort of scholarship you need to do Need Access if I understood correctly.


You need to do it to be considered for any need-based aid including loans. They may offer scholarships based on need as well from need access. You can be awarded a merit scholarship before submitting need access though, so I don't believe it to be a requisite for that. You just most likely won't have a complete fin aid package until you submit need access unless you plan to front whatever is left over after merit based scholarships.

Should have a complete financial aid package by the end of March. Make sure to do FAFSA and Need Access in the next two weeks.
