    Oh, so you're under 23 and you have to file as a "dependent" student, right?

    I really don't like the qualifications they have for "independent" and "dependent". I knew a girl who lived on her own, completely supported herself financially...but since she was under 23 she still had to include her parent's info. And her parents were rich, so she got royally screwed over.

    I'm glad I'm a senior and I don't have to fill out the FAFSA again.

    Complicated situation; my mother is a discouraged worker and had her house foreclosed. She lives in my grandparents' house while I now live with my sister.

    You have to give your parents information if you're under 23. It's fucked up, but there it is. It screws some people out of even being able to go or continue going to college until they reach the age of "independence." An acquaintence of mine went through this. She's 21, lives with her bf, and her mother's husband refused to provide their tax information for the FAFSA. She had to withdraw from school.

    So put your mother's info. It's basically to make sure that people from upper-middle class and wealthy families aren't scamming the government for Pell Grants or something. Unfortunately, it backfires in some situations, like my acquaintence there. I hope it works out better for you.
