I recently completed my FAFSA application and as I said in a previous post, last year's Estimated Family Contribution number was 50. This year, my EFC was 93... That probably means I'll be paying a lot for tuition. With an EFC of 50, I didn't have to borrow any many and I gave less that $100 out of my own pocket.

This coming year, I'll most likely lose my SMART grant (roughly $3000 for the year). So, I have applied for several scholarships, which I doubt I'll get, but I'll continue to write essays for additional scholarships. Hopefully, I'll be able to cover all the costs.

Good for you -- I always submit mine late and pay the penalty of waiting.

Good for you getting your FAFSA in on time. People usually proscrastinate which leads to paying additional fees. Who wants to do that? Having it in early is a little insurance that you'll get all the funding you need.
