I feel that often times people are too focused on whether the major is ranked the best or whatever or the ranking of the school, without actually considering whether they would be happy there, or will they fit in, or whether they are okay about not fitting in. I think these are some very pertinent questions to ask, and should be considered by ppl seeking admission this year.
if you have a question, ask here.
if you have a comment about how people ask questions and what questions people ask [i refrain from using the word 'advice', for i know not your background and position], i wonder if this thread is the place for it - especially since you're not the one answering people's questions.

N-E-V-E-R, NOT WHEN IT'S SOMETHING AS IMPORTANT AS COLLEGE APPLICATION FORMS.
YOUR FEE WAIVER REQUIRES SIGNATURES. MAYBE ONLY YOUR COUNSELOR'S SIGNATURE. BUT SIGNED FORMS ARE LEGALLY VOID IF YOU SCAN/FAX/EMAIL THEM. MAIL THE HARD COPY, PERIOD.
and thing is, if you mail in your fee waiver with everything else, then definitely you'll need to attach everything.
if you're mailing in your fee waiver as a separate document, it is possible that you can just send it on its own. make sure that the college knows who the fee waiver is for, why you need a fee waiver, and the extent of which you need it. in other words, write the letter properly, and you're mostly fine. some colleges require the college board international financial aid supplement in order to grant fee waivers, and you would be wise to comply if that were needed.
