I've looked everywhere on this site for this, so if it's here, I've missed it & I apologize for wasting a post. BUT--can I use an international money order to pay my initiation fee? I've read that foreign requests (I'm in Japan) have to use a money order drawn from a U.S. bank, but I use int'l m.o.s to pay off my student loans every month, and the U.S. gov't has no problem cashing them. The reason I ask is that the banks don't want to let me fill out a money order if I don't have an account with them, and I'd rather avoid opening an account I'm immediately going to close out.
