I'm currently a full time student and was unemployed for all of last year so that I could focus on school. I have supported myself partly with financial aid, however I live with my boyfriend who is able to pay for rent, utilities and food. Because I am 25, I qualify as an independent on my FAFSA, but how will it affect my application when I did not have any "income" last year? I feel a little weird about putting zeros for all of my tax information. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated and I'm happy to provide more info if needed.
