Also, I'm gonna re-ask this, b/c I have to believe someone here knows how I get out of this hole:
Well, looks like I may have screwed up. Somehow, UC Davis Law "My Awards" says they never received my FAFSA, and i am now thinking that I messed up somehow when I was editing and re-adding schools to my FAFSA report. That is, UCD is not on the new list (well, now I've added it!), so when adding new schools maybe I forgot Davis completely or deleted it before they received the SAR. This was all done in February!
At any rate, I'm hoping they can evaluate my FAFSA on the fly this Mon-Wed, because I need to put down the deposit by Thursday.
I'm glad they use the Need Access, however, so they have that on file.
But does anybody know if my need-based grants can be affected by this FAFSA screw-up? I know I'm late to be admitted, but my need has never changed, and my being admitted in June was something outside of my control. I would like to think that b/c I am 37, $1500 in the bank, EFC=0, and with $10,000 in undergrad debt, that that would allow me to receive on the high end of grants.
Thanks if you have any insights into this.
