I got an email from WashU saying that they’re offering me a fee waiver. I’m applying, so of course I’m happy about this.
I just want to make sure: there’s no other requirement I need to meet in order to take advantage of it, right? I’m not financially in need of a waiver, so I’m just trying to understand what incentivized them to give me one. The Common App has a box where one can check whether they’ve received a fee waiver via email, so it’s pretty easy to use.
Has anyone else received one via email? If they’re sending it out to many people, wouldn’t they just scrap the application fee for everyone?
