"Hey! A Fee Waiver!"...NOT!

Post by billyez » Fri Jan 15, 2010 2:16 am

Thank you, Penn State (the not-so-good one, no reason to get pissed UPenn folks) and George Washington University, for giving an applicant more hope than he needed. Do not bother sending me e-mails about speakers at your school (Penn) or talk about how great your law school and request me to confirm mailing information (GWU) if you aren't willing to give me a fee waiver.

Referring to Penn State as "Penn" is not a good idea. Trust me on this.

+1.

GWU doesn't give merit-based fee waivers at all, unfortunately.

It's a common mistake. When my cycle began last year, I thought Penn was a public school like Penn State, just more of the state's flagship public school (kind of like how the University of Texas is the flagship public school for Texas). When I first realized that Penn is actually an Ivy I went :shock:

I told my mom I got a fee waiver to Penn...she's said, "Penn State!!". I said, "No, mom, the Univ. of Penn..). She let out a sad sigh....LOL She didn't even know the difference because we're west coast people!!! I love her to death.

They gave me one. I think there must be one person in the office who doesn't know that they're not supposed to give them out.

They gave me one two years ago... I wouldn't have applied otherwise.
