The FAFSA determines your need for loans. WUSTL's deadline for the FAFSA was 3/1 and it takes 2 wks for FAFSA to process and get to the school. Yes, you are late, and it may impact the package that you get and your eligibility for federal loans.
I submitted my fafsa too most schools in January, but I just forgot to add WUSTL since I was redoing my taxes. Looks like I totally really screwed myself. I doubt I will get anything but a waitlist (probably a rejection) so it can't matter. I honestly doubt that it matters if you are waitlisted. They figure out ways to get a loan package together for waitlisted people if they ultimately get accepted...
I do not know WUSTL's policy on figuring out the financial aid package for WL people. I do know that to apply for federal loans, the school has to have your FAFSA info on file. The school encourages prospectives to have their FAFSA processed by the March 1 deadline so that the school in turn can try to offer scholarships and loans to admitted students by the tuition deposit deadline. Are you screwed? Like you said, that may depend on how they decide onyour application. Call the school. Even if you think you will be WL or rejected, you never know what might happen, but at least you will be informed.
