Sometimes being an obsessive researcher has its perks. For instance...Western Governors University has a $65 application fee. While it may be well worth it in the grand scheme of things, $65 is a lot of money to some people (like me). I would have had to wait at least another month to start if I had to pay the fee. But I didn't. Why, you ask? Because during the research mentioned in the previous post, I discovered that WGU has a great referral program. If a WGU student refers you to the school by filling out a simple online form, you will receive a code that will waive your $65 fee. On top of that, the person who refers you will receive an Amazon gift card. Win-Win.
Leave me a comment here and I will be happy to refer you. Then go spend that $65 dollars you saved on some new shoes or tacos or whatever makes you happy. You earned it, after all.
