Good luck on your JS1. The interviewers all seem really nice and try to make you as comfortable as possible.

I sent a pretty standard, boilerplate email to almost every school on my list that I didn't already have a waiver for (around 8 or so) and I received fee waivers from 5 of them. Just send them an email with your full legal name, LSAC number, LSAT and GPA and they'll look you up and say yes or no.

It should be noted that I received two fee waiver rejection responses from Penn and Northwestern but it turned out that I had two hidden waivers from them anyway :roll: so you never know if you may 'hidden' ones...


do you only find out about the hidden ones at the very last minute? i.e. when you are in checkout/pay mode.
