What is FAFSA, and why is everybody talking about it?

The FAFSA 

Completing the Free Application for Student Aid (or FAFSA) is the most important step to finding and securing money for college. FAFSA is used to determine all federal loans and grants and is used by most colleges to help determine how much money they will give each student applying for financial aid.
