Fee Waivers

Postby josemnz83 » Tue Nov 06, 2012 6:52 pm

Have any of you received fee waivers from Virginia or Penn? I have received tons of fee waivers since taking the LSAT but am afraid that they just want me to apply and get rejected, helping their selectivity rate.

Thanks and best of luck on your admissions!

I got a fee waiver from Penn about a month ago. I just saw in my junk file that UVA gave me a waiver also (I would have been pissed if I missed that).

I'm a 3.6/157 NA, if that helps at all. Im hoping I'm not an auto-ding either...

I figure though, if you get a waiver, what do you have to lose right? Apply and give them a chance to read your PS and DS, maybe you'll persuade them.

Got one from Penn myself, and I know it might not mean much to them, but to me that's about $80 I won't have to spend. Even if all I'm doing is boosting their selectivity, at least I won't have to pay anythin to find that out. I only need one hail Mary yes anyway.
