They explicitly said because I used the fee waiver I cannot get another one.


Gotcha. Okay I built your list into the OP.

Gave fee waivers second time:

UCLA
Vanderbilt

Aren't
Columbia
Penn
Duke (maybe, still waiting to hear)
UNC (maybe, still waiting to hear)
Notre Dame (maybe, still waiting to hear)



I can add the above schools. Also, Columbia did renew my fee waiver... and Duke didn't. I'm still waiting on several schools to get back to me as well. Interestingly, UNC told me they don't give out merit based waivers. Did they offer you one last cycle?

Really? I sent an e-mail to Columbia and they said no, despite qualifying stats.

Last year when I got the waiver, I emailed them asking to defer it and they agreed. This year they told me they aren't honoring past waivers any longer, but I attached the email exchange and they honored it.

I'm starting to feel that you'll get another one depending on three factors: if the adcom 1) had sex the night before 2) had breakfast that morning 3) doesn't have constipation.

UNC sent me 3 emails notifying me that I have a fee waiver waiting for me if I apply. I'll switch you my UNC for your Columbia?
