@QListr @RepBarbaraLee I graduated in 2005. This is the first year that my hubs and I will be above poverty level. I'm white; he is white and NA. The first year I filled out FAFSA, my mom made $13k. It's not just a race issue. Poverty affects people of all races.

Through Oct. 30, FAFSA completions are down 16.1 percent, (~117,000 fewer completions) than in the previous year.
It's not too early to worry about the drop in FAFSA completion. Or too late to fix it

This is a point that came up a few times in reporting this story: the FAFSA is, to say the least, not straightforward. It's several pages long and too complicated for most people to just sit down and figure out on their own.

@gordythomas @JaySalohcin @JoeBiden Sorry, but if you were dumb enough to sign those FAFSA papers to rack up over $100k on a useless degree then that’s on you. College doesn’t actually teach you anything except how to drink and overpay for **** you’ll use once. Not the taxpayers problem.

@Ry_nCement @stltoday Isn't that what FAFSA is all about? Ability to repay is already factored into cost of attendance. Some students riding free foolishly take on debt. The predatorial lenders offering student loans that surp*** cost of tuition, room and board, and books should be shut down.

That is certainly part of it. Pell grants are for poor and working cl*** families. Student loans is a big problem for families whose incomes imply they have more money to spend on education than they do. FAFSA don't ask about debt and bills.
