The U.S. Department of Education has determined that my mother’s parent plus loan that she co-signed is ineligible for discharge. I knew this would happen, it’s an easy cop-out since it’s not the parent that actually attended the for profit institution. I had to use the evidence from my application when i did hers, but at the time as i was filling hers out it made no sense to use my evidence, but what evidence can a co-signer really have?
I have absolutely no hope for this coming election.
I don’t even know if it is worth the time to write them for reconsideration.
They said i failed to provide adequate evidence. and will not accept new evidence.
