Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Good luck. I wish I could give you advice, but I'm still in the stage of wanting to move to Europe but with no idea how.

And there's no option of appealing to higher-ups (can you contact TV/local paper for a little media pressure?), trying to get credit for the years you lived there?

I will meet with the university's student legal help next week about getting the credit.

But I am not sure if they can help.

Despite the horror stories of German bureaucracy, the one thing they are are consistent on is that if you have the paperwork, they abide by it, and you can count on it.

Unfortunately, my paperwork is not in my favor on this because I didn't catch the mistake.

My only hope is the "as a foreigner, how would I know" defense, which is pretty weak in a court of law.
