$$$$ back after you have already sent applications?
« on: December 21, 2005, 02:13:14 PM »
I am an idiot and didn't realize that my wife and I were poor enough to get fee waivers.  I have now gotten two in the last two days (from schools I contacted) and will probably get at least one more if not two.

Is there any hope for the 10 other applications I have already paid for?  Please, please, please...

People are getting reimbursed after receiving merit-based waivers. Your situation is probably more urgent; I'd say there's hope.

Cute puppy, by the way. Is it yours?

Not my puppy, just looks a lot like her.

Should I call/e-mail schools I already applied to? (and that have already cashed my check!)

Definitely call and/or e-mail them. But hurry -- they're all shutting down for the holidays.

Definitely send an email and ask if they could refund your waiver in lieu of the fee waiver you were very happy to receive.  I do not think it will be a problem at all.

I had that happen with Quinnipiac, they gladly sent me a check! :)

Cool.  I have no e-mailed or called every school.  I'm just hoping that I will get at least $100 or so back.
