Can a decision still get reversed?
First off, I go to CC and I applied for Financial Aid in early March (2nd FAFSA app ever). They emailed me back and told me to fill out this Supplemental Form so I got it done and mailed to them in June, I think (I know, I know.. it got lost in my email). Other than this they didn't tell me if there was anything wrong with my application or if I need any more documents than the Supp. Form. Fast forward a few months to today, I got an email saying "based on my EFC, I did not qualify for a Pell Grant."
What I don't understand is, financially, my family is basically identical to last year's. I mean, we're a little better off than last year since my dad started his small business, but it's still in its baby steps. They didn't email me about tax returns or anything, which was odd because usually they do. I mean, I didn't even get a confirmation whether or not they got my Supp. Form or not. I have a friend who goes to CSUSB which a Nurse mom and a Realtor dad and she's been accepted for a Grant for the second year in a row.
Can this decision be reversed? If yes, what do I have to do? I can go to their office in my CC but what do I say? I just think it's a little unfair considering my circumstances compared to others.. not trying to sound entitled or anything, though.
NOTE: Sorry if I sound like I'm rambling, I'm really tired and I just got off a flight. If it helps, my CC is in Orange County, CA.
