Unfortunately, the information I gave you before about being an independent student (and thus getting financial aid for graduate school) was incomplete and may not apply to you.

What I was referring to is the third bullet item in the list here:

But I also noticed the disclaimer at the top: "(Note: Law school and health profession students may be required to provide parental information regardless of their dependency status.)"

which is ambiguous but ominous. In further investigation, page 15 or so of this PDF makes it seem like parental income is taken into consideration for determining need:
