To the people complaining about FAFSA verification causing them debt - p explains the verification process - which in summary puts the burden not on your school, but on Department of Education requirements for verification and validation. Disrepancies, and often (in my experience) people qualified for Pell Grants, have a higher chance of being pulled by DoE and while the first group (discrepancies) is mandatory, the second is random, about 1 in 4. I was selected, and it took about 30 minutes to complete verification. Basically if you have all the papers you used to complete your FAFSA, and 15 minutes to answer qualifying questions on a site, you should have no issues with verification. So if you're moaning about debt, apparently either you didn't want to go through a 30 minute process including faxing papers, OR there were discrepancies that would change your aid level that you didn't want to disclose. Most errors are honestly just simple errors - for example, someone inadvertently putting the wrong year in for date of birth or marriage. And those are easily fixed, so really, shouldn't be a fuss. You'll run into this at any school that uses federal aid, so be prepared - when you fill out your FAFSA keep your papers handy. Then if you're asked to complete verification it should be painless. (And this applies even if you go to John Doe Academy of Fine Basketweaving).

The program itself I was frankly shocked at the amount of work. I'm a good writer and relatively quick, and I found myself having to bear down and grit my teeth through some of it.

Learning teams I'm lukewarm about. I've had about 50-50 good to bad teams so far, and while it has been a definite learning experience dealing with different personalities, it has been an additional challenge I wasn't quite ready for.
