A school just asked me for a reason for wanting a fee waiver. Do I just say that the expense of numerous applications is too much or something? I definitely don't qualify for need-based waivers so I don't know if that would work

That is ridiculous, they know why you want a fee waiver. It's the same reason any student would want a fee waiver.

Got NYU, Cardozo, UCLA, NU so far.

Got an email from George Town inviting me to apply but they did not mention fee waiver.

After this weekend I will start solicitation to the rest of t14. I understand that H, Y, S don't offer them right?

Not merit-based. You can ask for a need-based waiver application, though. Your stats must be pretty damn good to think that you can solicit HYS for a merit-based waiver hahaha

Now at UCLA, William and Mary, University of Washington, Mercer, University of Richmond, Cardozo, and NYU unsolicited .

I applied to NYU before the waiver offer though, so is there any chance of getting a refund?

Unsolicited from Cardozo, NYU, Mercer and Richmond. (3.92/168)

I expected Mercer to have TTT employment stats but its stats are respectable so probably a good option for a GA native.
