Works horribly and can’t handle traffic

I’ve been trying to complete this form for the past 2 hours because it keeps freezing on me and saying I have that FAFSA found an error. Won’t let me load anything and keeps logging me out every time I try to complete the form where I left off. I don’t get how a government website can’t handle the applications that are being sent their way. It’s so upsetting and frustrating because there are probably hundreds of other students like me who are trying to submit their applications before the deadline. It’s FAFSA’s OWN FAULT if their website can’t handle it. Why do we have to suffer the consequences of our forms submitting late and past the deadline when it’s the website’s fault for not processing them well enough? I hope this gets resolved soon. Get your stuff together, FAFSA. Your own support number isn’t even working.

So bad

When clicking on I would say 50% of the buttons on the app a box shows up saying “please wait” then it disappears and nothing happens, forcing you to restart the app. Then when you actually get through and finish your form sometimes it doesn’t save or freezing causing you to restart the app. This app is supposed to be taken seriously because of the important financials you are doing but you cannot even finish your form without an issue.
