Cornell's FinAid deadline is March 15, which includes submitting both student and parent 2011 tax returns to their office along with the Financial Aid Information Sheet. I've already submitted the FAFSA and Need Access, but I haven't yet filed my 2011 tax return and neither have my parents. And they won't have theirs filed by March 15.
Also I don't even know if I'm accepted yet or not. I applied kind of late in the cycle and I don't know if I will have a decision by March 15.
Is this 3/15 deadline a hard deadline and anybody who submits that stuff afterward isn't guaranteed consideration for need-based grants?
Not 100% on this, but I'm pretty sure you get more time if you haven't been accepted yet. Like you should get your stuff in 2 weeks after being accepted (if after the deadline).
Okay, thank you. I was hoping Cornell would give more time if you haven't yet been accepted, but I didn't see anything on their financial aid section on the website about it so I wasn't sure.
