42:20@GraceJ:When I look at colleges with BS/MD program, some schools mentioned “no special financial aid for students in this he program” , does it mean these colleges even don‘t provide financial aid for the part of undergraduate ?
46:48@Kadin:I want to pay for college all on my own, so is there anywhere on the FAFSA and CSS where I can say this? So they won’t consider my parents income, etc.

53:58@GraceJ:Do you know how many decent colleges with BS MD program have options of early decision or early action ? Thanks

63:48@Kadin:I will be going to college in 2022 and then my younger brother will be going to college in 2023. Do you think I will get more need based $ in 2023 (because of my brother attending college)? And we both use our parents income on the FAFSA and CSS.
