Thanks for all of the input. Hearing about similar experiences has helped very much. I was able to squeeze some cash from the parental units by explaining the fee waiver process, so I will probably be applying to more schools now.
This possibility brings up a new dilemma. I'm not too keen on Cornell and I can't live in Tennessee so Vandy is out. Duke seems like it would be a good fit in terms of numbers and location. One MAJOR problem: I grew up in Connecticut as a UConn basketball fan and I continue to follow the team mercilessly. For anyone who is familiar with NCAA basketball, UConn and Duke are bitter rivals. Now, I would love to be able to attend some kickass bball games at Cameron but I could never support Duke's team and respect myself. Would attending Duke be completely unethical?
