Sending in the paperwork and the money might be the most confusing part. Flunking the physical was the easiest part.

There are two fees is original " Evaluation fee" $100.

The other is an " issuance" fee $45.00.

I don't know if the "issuance fee" pops up in subsequent pages..after you fill out the form and hit $100. and go to the next page or not ?

The 1st page doesn't take your credit you can probably cancel the transaction if you don't see the $45.00 fee in subsequent pages and call them for clarification

I've always used a consultant and just sent the checks and documents to him.
