Ohio State gave me a fee waiver just for visiting

Stopped by, talking to an admissions person, took a short tour, and got a fee waiver. Don't know if this is standard policy, but I am inclined to think so.

Any school that does that should be avoided like the plague. There is a university in my state that hands out acceptances to high schools students based solely on their class schedule. No one has much regard for said school.

OP, it's pretty standard. School visits and school fairs are great ways to acquire waivers.

Sounds like a lot of work for a fee waiver.

Stopped by their table for a few minutes at my university's law school fair and got a fee waiver. It seems that they apply the same theory most schools apply to scholarships; charge "money" then cut the price for many viable candidates to make them feel special and more likely to attend.

That being said, I like OSU, and there's a not insignificant chance I'm headed there next year!
