Unfortunately, I didn't make the March 2nd financial aid deadline (it costs money to apply for financial aid at UCLA so, not having yet received a decision, I held off assuming I was WL or rejected ; WHY would a university set their FAFSA & grant aid deadline before informing admitted students? Granted, it's my fault for not applying, but given that the Need Access application adds 30 bucks on top of the application fee I already paid, and I'm broke, it seemed ridiculous to fill it out and throw it towards a university that hadn't even given me an under review date. I haven't even heard back from half the schools I applied to, and I'm expected to have already applied to UCLA's financial aid program without being admitted? INFURIATING!!!).
Despite financial aid frustration though, still excited. It's an incredible school, and I'm thankful.
That is definitely frustrating. This problem has always been my biggest fear. Maybe you could talk to the school about it, because it is not your fault at all and since the deadline was not that long ago.
