Yeah I guessed as much, but I remember for UC UGs, schools wanted the FAFSA to receive ANY kind of scholarships, including merit-based.
I thought for Hastings at least, FAFSA is for loans only.[/quote]
Yeah, but I know that at least for undergrad, the schools wanted you to fill out the FAFSA just to get an idea of your financial situation to qualify for even the merit aid they offered. And since FAFSA is more geared towards loans for law school, I thought maybe they wanted you to fill out the needaccess form also because it's a lot more detailed and it's used to determine eligibility for need-based grants.
Maybe I'll just call a couple of the schools on Monday. We have til March 2nd, right?
edit: crap. Hastings' deadline is March 1. UCLA's is March 2nd. Onward to all of my other schools to find out their specific due dates...sigh.
