  • that is way to long... even in the busiest of times, it shouldn't be longer than a 6 weeks or so... call the school of your choice and see if they need more info.

  • Yeah check with financial aid. So much is done on line now. You may be missing some forms.

  • I just checked my status on-line and they are wanting a few different forms from me. So check your on-line account or give them a call. I submitted my Fafsa only a couple weeks ago.
