I was suppose to recieve a student loan to cover a semester of schooling. I turned in all my paperwork on time and waited for my financial aid department to process everything. I checked up on my financial aid advisor every week, she assurred me everything was fine. They ended up not processing my information and the loan was never disbursed. My advisor then advised me to pull a private loan (Sallie Mae) to cover the debt. I did so. Can my Sallie Mae loan be forgiven? Can Legal action be taken against the school as the debt is the result of their negligence? What steps can I take now?
