I can't find an email address to send a merit FW request to UNC. Does anyone know where to send to?

Ugh, still nothing from BU. I wonder if they send them out throughout the week, or just one day.

How do you find hidden fee waivers? I really want one from Northwestern, seeing as how their fee is $100.
And what would be the school's incentive for doing it this way?

I took the test in June and didn't get a BU waiver, but they did give me one in response to my email request. It's worth a shot. I also succeeded in getting an waiver from Georgetown by emailing.

GTown is so sporatic. I got one, but I believe Helm didnt get one and he has better numbers..

Georgetown is about THIS CLOSE (holds fingers up less than an inch apart) to becoming my arch-nemesis! Their app costs about as much as a seat deposit, if I pay them that they better freaking let me in!

Same.

Also, UH agreed to refund my app fee. I managed to apply and pay the fee MINUTES before they offered to waive it. Nice people :D

Thanks for the tip! I received Vandy hidden as well (I had requested one via e-mail about 2 weeks ago and got the standard "if you deserve it, it will show up via CRS").

FWIW I also requested one from Emory and received a code to enter after telling them my numbers.

It's too bad those $12 are starting to add up.

Good to know!! I'm asking NOW! I just got WUSTL via request and I got "we don't do merit waivers" from BC :x

Talk to Helm, he will teach you how to get the schools to pay for that $12

Go to your applications and fill out the minimum required information on the primary application for whatever school you're curious about. Click submit, preview the application, and hit continue. If you have a fee waiver you should get a message along the lines of "your $xx application fee has been waived due to CRS fee waiver." If you have to select a payment option, you grumble with disapproval and hit the back button a few times. Repeat as necessary.
