savvier folks might correct me on this, but I think if you want to be cautious you should avoid saying things like that (i.e. I don't particularly want to go here) especially in school threads. in case schools who lurk realize who you are. not that you said anything horrendous about Chi.

then again baby gaga may like to live on the edge

I live on the edge of glory, but I'll delete it anyway.

The worst they will say is no. I didn't qualify but then I got a fee waiver from them a week later. It's unclear if my email had any bearing on the matter.
