I'm no troll but I haven't had luck finding the answers to my questions with the search function, so I though I'd ask. This year, when I filled out my FAFSA, my EFC was $3000 lower than last year's, yet when my financial aid package came in, I was given approx $2000 LESS (I'm talking about loans) and my family definitely made a lot less this past tax year than the previous year. So I'm asking all of you fellow undergrads (those of you who worry about money and don't have rich parents) if you've ever haggled with a financial adviser so you could get more funds. By no means am I poor, but I'm not rich and I feel like I need more funds. Is it possible to "haggle" for more funds?
