I had hoped that after their application opened they would start sending fee waivers.
Does anyone know if they give them out based on CRS data? Or if asking them works?Also, does anyone know those answers but for Cornell?
The only schools in the top 20 I haven't gotten them for are the top 5 and then cornell and georgetown. Not getting them from the top 5, where I'm under-qualified, makes sense, but I'm still puzzled as to why I didn't receive them from Georgetown and Cornell.
I'm applying to 11 of the T14. I e-mailed all 11 schools back in August to request a merit- or need-based fee waiver. Excluding HYS and Columbia, I ended up with fee waivers from all of these schools EXCEPT Cornell, who never responded. The consensus on TLS seems to be that Cornell hasn't given any fee waivers yet at all this cycle. I'm planning to wait another few weeks, and if I've still not heard anything, I think I'll go ahead and submit without a waiver, since I don't want to pester Admissions.
Does anyone have any insight into whether or not Cornell has historically given fee waivers, though, and -- if so -- when?
I asked Cornell for a fee waiver via email on September 17th, and received one on September 20th.
Edit: It seems at least one other person posting in the "Unsolicited Fee Waivers 2017" thread has also successfully solicited from Cornell.
