lol. no. Why did you apply already? You know that early November is not late right? You're essentially a lock for NYU with your numbers.

For some reason after getting my score back I thought, 'you know the earlier I apply (down to the second), the better the outcome.'

Apparently not though! Thankfully I applied to only a few schools and most of them don't offer waivers, so I'm not losing that much $.

Can schools see the fee waivers you already have? I've successfully solicited fee waivers from a couple of schools and I was wondering if that affects my chances of getting fee waivers from other schools.

Interesting. I'll contact them and see if anything comes of it.

Just got a FW from Washington and Lee University.

seriously? not a t14 school right?


no, t50 private. and yeah, i feel like why I want a waiver is pretty obvious


SMU? They said that to me.

Hey, if I haven't gotten an unsolicited fee waiver from some of the schools you guys are listing, then does that mean that I'm not going to get one, or should I wait a few days?

>both 75th%s

hence the feeling of being unloved when they passed me up the first time

I haven't either. Another poster said the same thing happened to him then they just gave him one the next day. If they don't send me one by Friday I am just going to ask again and reiterate my stats. What else can we say?
