So, my son Kevin is applying to colleges.
He filled out this federal form for financial aid. We live in North Carolina, and said so on the form.
So....we just got this letter, from the state of "Rhode Island and Providence Plantations."
That's pretty small so let me summarize.
1. The state of RI & PP takes it upon itself to file EVERY application for federal aid as an application for aid in the state of RI.
2. Then, they send out letters to everyone NOT from RI, telling them that they were turned down for aid.
3. The reason is that....YOU DON'T LIVE IN RI & PP!
This was an actual letter, sent in an envelope, with a stamp. Rhode Island turned us down for aid we didn't apply for, based on a residence that we never claimed, for a set of colleges my son didn't even apply to.
Your government, at work.
