So are you allowed to exaggerate your needs and stuff or just downright lie? Will they ever find out? Just wondering... because I finished my CSS but I don't think I'll get very much out of it.

Read over your question and you tell me
If the colleges expected families to exaggerate their needs and "stuff", then what am I doing worrying about filling out each little box correctly?
You are generally required to verify data by submitting signed 1040 forms exactly how you submitted of IRS including copies of W'2s.
Schools in have been known to verify that , that information is correct. But if you want to take a chance that your data won't be verified, feel free, just be prepared to be expelled if it is, and it is obvious that you fudged your numbers

I would also be careful about lying on a FAFSA application. I have not checked the FAFSA specifially, but most federal forms have fine print saying that you are signing under penalty of perjury. That's a felony offense. Of course, your mileage may vary.
Funny thing about honesty. Not only is it usually easier - no lies to keep track of - it lets you sleep better. No federal marshalls pounding on the door at 5 am with an arrest warrant etc.
