Really? If a school wouldn't wave my tuition, I wouldn't go there. I think most people would do the same.

I forget how it worked at the other schools I was looking at, but I don't think Wisc was the only program where RA tuition wasn't payed for by the prof's grant. I'm not going to take the time to dig up the information now though.
