True for me as well with Uchi/Mich/Duke, just checked

Got one from UVA unsolicited, though I asked for one a few days ago just in case, so I guess I would've gotten one anyway :lol:

I think figuring out that fee waivers from last cycle roll over to this year was a game-changer. What do I do with all this $$$

Dumb question: Do we have to pay for CRS again? Or is it just a one-time thing?

I believe that CRS is a free service. The only thing you pay for is CAS which is the assembly service

You're totally right. I think it's time for me to go home from work lol
Do you know if CAS is a one-time payment or do we have to re-purchase the service as re-applicants?

Once you pay for CAS I think your account is active for 5 years. So as long as you purchased it recently you should be good

Not 100% sure, but for anyone that can make it out to Penn to go on one of those scheduled visitor's day, I think they give out fee waivers if you go on those.

It's a cool place to visit too, so if you're nearby Philly, it might be worth the trip.

You posts are really starting to get to me. Not against you obviously I'm just still sitting here with my paltry two waivers when apparently if I had only taken one year off instead of two I wouldn't have had to lose any sleep over this
