Is the Cornell Law Financial Aid Information Sheet only for accepted students? I could have sworn it was for all prospective students who wished to be considered for institutional aid but the website says that you should turn it only when accepted, and for those accepted after the March 15 deadline, a new deadline would be released.
The FAFSA is the federal financial aid application (Stafford loans, Grad Plus, etc.), so you're talking about two different things. FAFSA you can fill out now regardless of acceptance; schools request that as they are evaluating federal loan eligibility in the summer. The Cornell Law Financial Aid Information Sheet I believe is for accepted students, but that doesn't mean you can't fill it out and get it ready to submit asap after you are accepted. It's pretty straightforward; Need Access is much longer so I would do that first.
On that note, the Cornell financial aid form online says 2012 and that 2013 forms will be available in mid-January. Am I missing something? Have other people just submitted the 2012 form? I'm assuming it's not any different.
ETA: Looks like the form online is up to date; the website just hasn't been updated to reflect that yet.
