So i received a number of Merit based fee waivers but i also applied for, and received a ton of Need based fee waivers. Since i am not an URM or a 1st gen college student, do any schools take into account that you have applied for a need based waiver and received one? I wrote an essay about what has caused the economic challenges in my life and sent them to all the schools as well, but i was curious if the need based fee waiver part helps at all. If you look at my resume, where i went to school, where i grew up, the sports i play and my current job you wouldn't be able to tell my past/current financial hardship so i felt the need to elaborate in an Addendum.
There is always a section for Race, but nothing about your background - since the PS is where you'd likely articulate this. Just kind of a thought.
