Mom Denied Plus loan. Can i request more money

<p>A couple weeks ago i applied for a loan. I asked for the maximum i thought i could get 5500 but my parents applied for a loan and got denied. So, can i now ask for a little more or is it to late?</p>

<p>I think the denial increases your Stafford loan eligibility to something like $9,500.</p>

<p>As a freshman you can increase your Stafford loan from $5.5K to $9.5K.</p>
