I Paid Rent In Advance?

I am living in MA right now, and I’m kind of in a trouble.
I was an international student and I didn’t know that moving in was so easy in Boston.
I found a Korean housing business, and they offered me a discount if I pay my
entire rent in advance. I had to stay in Boston for 9 months, so they offered me discount
and I paid up to 11,000 (which was stupid) before I moved in.
But before I moved in they told me that if I did not pay the entire rent this time,
then they could not guarantee that I could stay afterwards and that they would not
offer me the same discount in rent afterwards……
There are so many unfair conditions in this house, I though it would be a big room, but
the room is in a mansion, and they talked as if this was a place for tenants, but their family lives here with 4 babies ㅡㅡ……
Also my roommate lost his key in the house, and they charged him $400 dollars and did not return
the $500 security deposit when he moved out. The crazy thing is: The land lord is not changing the door for 4 weeks now….
Am I eligible for a refund on the basis of rental law? Or is it impossible to get the rent back?
I’m going through Boston city hall and everything, but I just wanted to make sure

    No, you are not entitled to rent back unless they evict you without any cause.

    You need an attorney, or legal aid. Get it now.
    Meanwhile…..
    Did you sign a lease? For how long? Many details missing from your question……
