Duke fee waiver. No priority, predictably.

I'm guessing the priority track isn't that important, so I'll take Duke's fee waiver w/o priority track. But still, based only on numbers I'm about a 99% admit at Duke so it's kind of strange.

I'm shocked you didn't receive a priority track. don't they know how awesome you are?!? :D


I can't tell if you're being sarcastic but if not, thanks, and if so, well what can I say? It's hard sometimes being me ;)


not sarcastic, you're one of my faves plus a retake inspiration!

Received waivers from Duke, Virginia, and Arizona today. 3/day, I could handle this rate of return.

If it's anything like last cycle, UVA is a serial fee-waiver school, especially for a lot of people who are probably just far enough out that they might not apply. And what can I say? It boosts their app numbers (which looks good in USNWR). Columbia, though perhaps to a lesser extent, did this too... often to the people who would end up attending MVP and the like. For that matter, a lot of schools did this. So did Baylor... oh geez, I don't really know where I'm going with this.

Yeah. Duke must've sent out a massive email. I'm a sucker for fee waivers, my application list continues to grow.

Also--if you email Columbia, they now have a fee waiver application. Sometimes they also "hide" them, but I emailed them my stats and they said I would have a good chance of getting a fee waiver if I emailed them in September for an application.

UChicago doesn't grant by request, I also found out.
