I went to the unemployment office yesterday. Last August I wanted to start school full time on-campus and they said no, because the program was $2,000 more than they allowed. The truth was that if I had a scholarship, which I had, I would have been able to attend. So, I took a small student load and took 6 credits on my own for the semester. As it turns out, I could have started school. Now I am 13 credits behind, a full semester and am going to start full time in January. My unemployment insurance will end in January 2012, but I will finish school in May 2012, which means that for one semester I will have no income. I am furious because if they had allowed me to enroll back in August my benefits would end at the same time as my school.
They messed up but now their only answer is sorry, but there is nothing we can do. I am not sure what are my rights here, but for sure I am so furious is not even funny.
OK, venting is over. Now off to find some answers.
