Will any schools offer fee waivers for their supplemental fees if you did *not* receive the AACOMAS fee waiver? I did not apply early enough for the program to be accepted and decided to submit my application without it. I'm not worried about the initial fees but figured it's worth asking before I pay. The only one that indicates it may offer a waiver based on individual circimstances on the CIB for 2017 is MSUCOM.

For reference I definitely meet the financial eligibility for the fee waiver according to the AACOMAS guidelines.

Anyone here have experience or contacted a school about this? Or am I just out of luck for not being quick enough?

If you do not have the AACOMAS fee waiver, most school will NOT accept to waive you fee.

Source: I have fee waiver, and almost all school I contact want me to send them the copy of AACOMAS fee waiver, and the school do have the list of who received fee waiver from AACOMAS.

You could very briefly (1 sentence) explain and ask nicely and it probably wouldn't be held against you, but you'll probably find most won't.
