Should I fill out my FAFSA before or after I send in my application for college?

Before, and really you need to do it now if you are needing financial aid for the fall. FAFSA applications for this year are due by March 1st.

I know! My parents haven't gotten their taxes done that's why it's taken me so long to fill it out

Yeah, definitely need to get that done first. But other than that, what college you are going to doesn't matter when you are filling out the FAFSA forms, so it's good to get that in, and then you can worry about making the college deadlines. Those are all probably coming up too though, so make sure you check those as well.
