So preparing for the inevitable waitlists: are there any schools it's worth riding the waitlist out (in the sense that it's not guaranteed you'll have to pay sticker if you're admitted off of the waitlist).

I wonder how many apps the average applicant pays for? It seems like TLS users end up paying for a few they didn't get waivers to, but I wonder what that figure looks like for those outside of TLS. As in, are there folks paying full price for 10-12 applications? That would really sting, especially the dings.
