Since I've got one admit, I know I'll be going to b-school this fall.

I noticed that you need to file your FAFSA form by April or so for most schools. Is there any harm in doing it now? Or do you need to know the school you'll be attending?

I was under the impression that you had to file your 2008 taxes before completing the FAFSA form. The federal student aid webpage is actually a pretty good resource (I just happened to be reading it this morning).

Well I'm glad I asked then! I usually leave my taxes to the last minute!
