Want to go back to school – not eligible for financial aid

OK ladies: here’s one that I REALLY need help with. I want to go back to school. I ran around NY today getting my transcripts from my old schools and medical documents and such. I filed the FASFA forms last night and got the results back today. It turns out I made too much money to qualify for pell grants. I can’t believe I made too much money – but that’s what I was told. Now – where do I go from there? I was really depending on those grants because I don’t have the financial resources to go back to school as I am unemployed and have been collecting unemployment since March of this year. Is there anything else I can do? If finding a job and working my way through college were the answer, I wouldn’t be on unemployment – so finding another job is out. If there is another solution, please let me know. Thanks so much for your help.
