My yellow form definitely asked about parents. It wasn't as invasive regarding their incomes, etc., but it did want to know what kind of support I'd be receiving from them.

Interesting, maybe they changed it. Or maybe it never included anything about parents. That's just the only thing i can think of that would have delayed the form.

Maybe I am wrong. The site says that the needaccess form asks about this, is this the fafsa? Because I know that I am exempt from parental info on the fafsa.

I just did the #@$@#%@#NEEDACCESS and GTown requests your parent info on that form.

This may be related to how happy I was to discover leftover Sapphire in my freezer.

I like that it asked how long it has been since I have lived with my mom. Hopefully seeing 8 years out will show them she is not supporting me.

Yah, it asks for my parents info. Fudge. I won't be receiving any support, but my mom does own a business.

I'm really sorry man. I saw it happen to a close friend, whose parents owned a business and it was their sole support. All they see is "Oh, you have 200k income? YOU PAY NAO!"

You could sell a kidney? That's kind of my plan.

Nah, I'll be okay. I'm actually in a very fortunate position when it comes to financing my law school but I'd like to buffer the hit as much as possible.

I remember there was one question that was something along the lines of "last year your parents gave more than $5,000 in support" or something like that...maybe that's what they're referring to? Otherwise I don't remember that question either.

I dunno, this is from the Gtown website: "Students enrolling in the JD full-time program may apply for need-based grant funding by completing the Need Access Application (preferred). This application collects detailed information from both you and your parents (including step-parents and non-custodial parents). Georgetown Law requires parental information from ALL applicants for need-based grant funding, regardless of the applicant's age, marital status or financial independence."

My mistake, the poster above me was talking about NeedAccess but the one before that was describing the yellow form; I got confuzzled.

Good! I was worried there. I also love how the date for finishing the yellow form has changed from March 1 to March 15th...since it came out on March 1.

Ok to be clear: Yellow form asks what your parents will give ($0 for me) and their names. That's about it.

Needaccess goes way into depth about parents. Since UCLA awarded me $20k in need based (for the first year), I'm hoping Gtown at least matches that.

Yeah that sucks about the parents. I mean, so what if parents make bank if they're contributing nothing...I mean, we're all adults here, not high school seniors heading off to college.

I asked my dad to fill out the Need Access and he took one look at it and said, "Son, you're fucked." Haha.

Where is credentials? Feeling dense.
