So I applied online through the website, selected some org stuff, paying the $6 fee via the site and all. I live out of state and picked my school as an organization to join.
I will update you all once I am updated... I'm keeping it a bit low key for now since I suspect they read these forums... remember when Mike from Citi was on here? Come on... so I'm going to wait and post my method if successful later (yes it's different than what others have said/done including Wang).
