I sent in all my fee waiver info (fafsa, essay, etc.) and was kind enough to give them my "Why Wisconsin?" essay, and Wisconsin was so excited when they received my "Why Ohio State" essay. Wisconsin gave me the fee waiver and said it was no big deal. OSU sent me a package in the mail with a letter explaining why I'm an idiot. Seriously.
NO WAY!! What did OSU say???
They kindly highlighted where I wrote "Wisconsin" and went into depth about why I shouldn't receive a fee waiver because it would be "impossible to be sure" if I really wanted a fee waiver at their school because, after all, it said Wisconsin in a completely non-school-specific essay until the last sentence. The ridiculous part is that I sent it in an envelope specifically addressed to their school. So, it was obvious I just screwed up. They told me how if I meant their school, I can re-send a letter that says Ohio State (I couldn't just call) and re-send all of my information. They didn't want to keep it on file and have me call and confirm that I meant Ohio State.
Wisconsin... they didn't even care. I wasn't even contacted, just given the fee waiver.
And to make it all worse... maybe it's just me that thinks this is a dick move... but they sent it in a large "accepted" style envelope, when it could have easily have fit in a regular envelope (which is what I sent it in). So imagine my excitement when I saw a large OSU package in the mail.
They're fucking with me... So, being a Michigander, I was just reminded why I hate Ohio State.
