FAFSA Problems Pile Up, Leaving Students and Parents Scrambling

"The new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms, which were marketed as a simpler and easier process for parents and students, have turned into a nightmare, giving families anxiety and stress over whether their students will have what they need for scholarships and college acceptance deadlines," The Hill reports.

..."Meanwhile, some are hoping that the May 1 college decision deadline will get moved back to give families more time to decide.

'I have seen that some schools have pushed back their deadlines. I imagine that there are also many schools who are still in internal conversations within their institution about their May 1 deadline,' said Karen McCarthy, vice president for public policy and federal relations at the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators."
