Fee Waivers

Postby wtrc » Wed Jun 29, 2011 11:16 pm

So what's the deal with fee waivers? They send you them entirely based on LSAT score? When? Not the kind of fee waivers you can get for making under a certain amount of $$ a year, but based on merit to make you apply.

some are automatic that you'll find when you're applying... but most of mine came from the school through e-mail. be careful... if a school seems too good to be giving you a fee waiver, they might just be trying to get you to apply to get their numbers higher (only to leave you dinged or waitlisted).

I applied to 17 schools, 12 gave me merit fee waivers. I was rejected to 10 schools that gave me a fee waiver. Just dont think about it too much. Its a free app Whether or not you get in will be determined by your numbers.

You can also request a fee waiver. As long as you are above the schools average numbers you shouldn't have a problems getting one. I think there is an articles on TLS that describes how to do this best. But just email someone in admissions with your LSAT/GPA and ask them for a fee waiver.

How soon after receiving my LSAT score should I expect to start seeing fee waivers?

I took the test June 6th and got my score back this past Monday and just signed up for CRS yesterday. Should I start seeing them in few weeks or will it not be till later this fall?

I took the June test as well, haven't signed up for CAS. So far I've gotten waivers from Seton Hall, Thurgood Marshall, U of Cinci, and U of Denver via email.
