    I had a free experience through FAFSA. That being said, the college does almost nothing to help you get it and it's like pulling teeth to get you check on time. My worst experience was receiving my FAFSA check 6 weeks late into an 8 week quarter. Poor show.

    A complete waste of my time and money. I would've learned more from a correspondence course.
