I'm so sorry, what an awful situation for you. Unfortunately, the advisors are not legally liable for giving you incorrect information unless you can show they have some specific duty to you and if this was someone who came to your high school with general information, I just don't see that. The obligation is on you to pursue the information that you need to fill out the form. I know that does not sound fair. I'm really glad that you are now going back to school. I hope that you are still able to use the credits you accumulated earlier.
