How does this happen? I am offered $16,000 in school loans, I accept all of them. They also list me as a non-resident, but since I have a full tuition waver, I figure it does not matter if I apply for residency status because it can't really hurt me and it helps out the department (or so I am told).
Well the residency application just went through and what do they do? They CUT MY LOANS TO ONLY $3,000!!!!!!!
WTF (and I am not thinking in only letters)
I still have a full tuition waver but apparently my "cost of attendance" is lower. What the hell? How is it lower? I didn't DO anything different. So now I'm screwed and I don't know what to do.
