The Director of Admissions wrote me back personally and offered me the fee waiver and PT. Very nice touch, Duke, I'm impressed.
Also, he cited the fact that my intended enrollment date for some reason said 2010 as the reason why I was not initially contacted.
So, great success.
Right on, thanks for the update. Your numbers are definitely better than mine, but I like to think I'm still in the ballpark for a waiver. I'll shoot them an e-mail soon.
