the data is small on mylsn, but 4/4 candidates I found with 2.5-2.7 and 170-180 were rejected at Michigan, so you could probably hold off on that if necessary. 2/2 applicants to U Minnesota were accepted with 120k scholarships, so it seems you've got a good chance at that fee waiver.

You should ask every school you want to apply to for a fee waiver, whether you think you'll get it or not. I think 75% of my apps were free.

Just an fyi so that future posts don't confuse people, YP is usually used to refer to a school waitlisting a candidate they would otherwise accept but feel that they are going to attend a different school. While Harvard enticing applicants they are definitely going to reject is technically a form of yield protection, using YP for that situation is generally an odd thing to do on here

I've already applied and interviewed with WUSTL. I'm waiting to hear from them. If I were sending that app today, I'd go ED.
