It is that time of the year, that overwhelming time when we do not seem to have enough hours in the day to do everything we need to before the holidays and/or vacation. And if you are not already overwhelmed, you can add completing the FAFSA ( Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application to the list. Although it cannot be filed until after January 1, now is a good time to register and try to figure out your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Check out this great blog: FAFSA Application: Everything You Need To Know In 2016. Remember Launch College Counseling for all your college search and application needs.
