For what it's worth, I haven't heard either way but I did submit mine about a month ago to be sure.

If you are planning on taking any loan money out, whether it be for food, housing, insurance, or anything, then I think you will need to fill it out.

If my understanding is correct, which it might not be, you have to fill it out to get approved to take out any federal student loans.

I won't be taking any loans for anything. My wife will be covering housing/food/everything else. So I guess I just won't do it since I haven't heard anything about it?

I think you should be fine then. Personally, I would do it just in case you end up needing it for some unfortunate reason, but that's mainly just because I think it's better to have the option than to limit yourself.

Also while very, very unlikely you could somehow qualify for need based aid. The chances are super slim, but might as well find out.

I have been waitlisted for a while and was wondering if anyone currently admitted could tell me if they have sent anything asking for final decision or another deposit? wondering when waitlist movement will start happening? Thanks

The deposit deadline was the beginning of April, and you were supposed to sign a scholarship acceptance form then. But, I don't know how hard they enforced that deadline.
