Does this mean that it was still showing as $80 under Submit/Pay Fees but then when you actually submitted, they didn't charge you the $80? I'm just wondering if there's a way to find out if I have it before submitting my app.

Both. I think it was granted for merit. Need they usually ask for forms.

When you hit "Submit/Pay Fees" the LSAC website won't automatically send your application; it takes you first to a preview page, then to a certification page, then you add the application to your cart. A CRS waiver will show up in that middle step, after you've previewed the application and before it's in your cart. You can go to this step before your application is complete. If you have a CRS waiver, it will say so above the certifying statement you have to click affirm.

Thanks, very helpful, quick follow up: How do you know if you get a fee waiver if you weren't planning on applying to the school

My Duke application fee was waived when I went to submit online today. Unless I missed it, this was not the case yesterday.

Also got Minnesota, St. Louis, and Loyola today via email.

You don't know until you try to submit if it is hidden. You open the application like you are going to apply, fill out like one line, then go to submit and check. As far as I know thats the only way to determine if it is hidden.


They send waivers to your email.


I also recieved a hidden waiver from duke today! One of the first waivers today that is to a school I am applying to.

If you have a fee waiver code, is there a box to input that? I can't imagine that LSAC would know if you recieved a code to enter by email. Of course, I'm probably wrong. :mrgreen:


I've seen a box to enter an individual waiver code on several apps when I go to submit. It's in the same place an existing waiver would be, usually the options are "Pay fee online with credit card," "Mail fee to school directly," "Enter individual waiver code: " with a box.

Great! Thanks for the info on the hidden waivers.

FYI, I just got a response from my email request to GWU that they only give need-based waivers automatically w/ the LSAC waiver and have no additional need-based or merit-based waivers. Boo...

Unsolicited/solicited e-mail from NW? Or Hidden waiver?
