Er I wouldn't. *shrug* If only because my experience with talking to ppl over the phone has been the person on the phone being extremely rude to me (I was asking a different, relevant question). Hey Yale, the person answering your phones is rude.


I was thinking about calling about other things- asking applicant questions, and at the end -- oh yeah, i asked for a fee waiver a while back.... under breath: (i know you're giving them out to people with numbers near mineeeeee)

Really depends. I called one school to ask a particularly valid question and I got cut off with a "No, bye" click mid-question.

Thats really strange. I have similar numbers to what you have listed in your profile and I received a waiver from most of the T14s that offer them. I think the only one that offers them and didnt give me one was Cornell(altho im not 100% sure they offer them.


Which ones offer them?

ETA: Ah yes, our numbers are rather close.


Off the top of my head I got UCLA, UVA, Duke, Gtown, and Minnesota among topish schools. I might have missed out on a few due to my CRS showing that my planned enrollment date wasnt until 2011. HYS, UCB, and UChicago I know definitely dont give merit waivers. I dont know about the rest.

Valparaiso sent me a package yesterday with a letter from the Dean saying my fee would be waived, and asking me to apply. Also some literature along with it.

I got the Valpo and fee waiver package last week as well and just received an email from Michigan State University. Finally, I'm getting fee waivers for schools which I'm intending on applying to anyway. For a while there, I was thinking the CRS state-specific interest was irrelevant since I was getting emails from schools in states I'd never consider.

Could someone elaborate on this "forum trick?" I'm in the same boat of having signed up for CRS over a year ago, and needing some fee waivers to show up.

What did your Michigan State email say? Mine said something about being a "very strong candidate" for a full tuition scholarship, anyone else get that?

I guess I'm not cool enough. Oh well. I've heard back from almost all of the schools I've emailed if anyone wants to PM me they can get a list of schools that gave me one (12 total)

Seeing all of you TLSers with much higher numbers than me get the fee waiver email from MSU (a school I am extremely interested in) makes me anxious and sad. :(

I haven't checked my snail mail box in maybe a week. I wish I would find it stuffed with fee waivers.

There is no trick. I signed up for a forum bc of my early CRS registration, and it didn't do anything. Still haven't gotten one waiver for this cycle. Email the schools you want waivers from in a few weeks..
