Worse case scenario … I really don’t have enough Financial Aid to cover expenses this year.
In the midst of a major family crisis last winter, I missed the deadline slightly for getting the FAFSA submitted on time, so consequently it automatically disqualified me from nearly everything. The woman I spoke with told me that there’s an appeal process for special priority circumstances, but that she’s rarely seen the appeals granted. She did tell me, though, after I told her what had been going on last year, “If your situation doesn’t count as a special circumstance, I don’t know what does.” But because I can’t document things due to privacy issues related to medical happenings with someone else, the chances are very slim of getting the aid I’ll need to continue school this year.
Most frustrated today.
