You can use the FAFSA 4Caster to help you figure out what amount of financial aid you may be eligible for:
Also, if you have identified the school to which you want to apply/have applied, you can hold conversations about financial aid with a financial aid counselor at the school, either by phone or in-person.
For the 2012-2013 school year, starting Fall 2012, the FAFSA application will not be available until Jan 1. 2012:
Since the employment picture is still tough in the USA, once you are accepted by the school, you may wish to look into on-campus employment. Generally, the campus fin. aid office oversees the on-campus job postings. Good things: the jobs are just for students, scheduling work and class schedules is usually easy, transportation to/from classes to/from job is easy; usually the campus food service and the library need the largest number of student workers - I suggest the library. Not so good things: the jobs are not glamorous; they usually pay minimum wage or just a bit higher. A paying job IS a paying job!
