If you're a college student - and definitely if you're the parent of a college student - you know what the FAFSA is.
And more than likely, you say it through clenched teeth, with a scowl and a furrowed brow.
The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the gateway through which the nation's college students get federal and state aid for college.
And it's no picnic. It's not a particularly long application, but it's detailed and murky and you have to do it every year.
The state offers some help, in the form of FAFSA Day, which is held this Saturday across the state.
