Today I received a bunch of fee waivers from schools including #1 choice duke. Based on LSN, I have minimal chance at duke. Is it something they like about me or should i be studying for the dec. lsat right now? I work tons of hours a day so i couldnt study and work on apps so if i do take it in dec. all my apps will be delayed till jan. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks


Dont put too much stock into fee waivers. Hunker down and retake in December. If Duke is your goal, study hard and do better than a 159.

I also got a fee waiver from Duke today. My GPA is 3.09 and 158 LSAT. I don't think I have a chance. Read my thread titled "how does a school decide to invite you to apply with a fee waiver?" Someone posted a good reason why they do this.

I got a fee waiver from Duke too. Due to AA male status, I probably have a good shot at getting in but I don't want to go.

With the OP's gpa and considering he's a aa male, what do you guys think would be a good LSAT score for him to get into Duke? Reason I am asking is because I have a similar gpa and Duke is one of the schools I am filling an application for. But I am not even sure it is worth the app fee because I didn't score too close within their normal range.

Should I admit I make mistakes? Should I tell you I've done this before?
