Today, my father's company shut down his branch, leaving him without a job. This is followed by a letter from my school's financial aid office, saying I'm not getting a penny because my family's income level is too high. FML
You can appeal by showing proof that your dad lost his job. Happened to me.
The sucky thing about financial aid, #13, is that a lot of middle class families don't have enough money to cover even 50% of college costs, but still aren't eligible for financial aid. We have to live off of scholarships, student loans, and working part or full time. Being average kinda sucks. (not that I'm saying people with few economic means have it easy, mind you)
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
