Advice needed! (UF)

I got accepted into UF and my efc is 5725 (which is weird because my family only makes 58k a year and we can't pay for any extra expenses) and I don't know what to do.
They only offered me 6,000 in grants and 15,000 in loans and 10,000 of those loans is the parent plus loan which has a really high interest rate and like I said, my parents can't afford it.
What are my options? I can't appeal because I don't have a special circumstance. Should I take out the loans? Is it worth it?
My only other option is FIU since FSU didn't offer me money except for loans. I live in Miami and I do not want to stay here because I'd have to commute A LOT to get there.
Are there any low interest loans out there? Anything I can do? :(
