Anyone have any luck with Wisconsin, Florida, FSU or Stetson?

I've heard Wisconsin is reluctant to give them out. and Florida and FSU are only $30 anyways, but Stetson is one of my safeties and I really don't feel like paying the money for an application. My LSAT is way over their 75th percentile.

Stetson is one of my safeties too, because of the location and scholarships they offer - I requested a fee waivee and they made me fill out a short form and send an explanation. I faxed it to them over the break, so I'm going to call them to make sure they received it. That being said, Laura Zuppo, their admissions director, just about assured me they'd give it out.

Wisconsin also asks you to fill out an app- more detailed. They want to know how much tuition you paid, your income last year, and to write them a letter explaining why you want a waiver. Apparently, they do not give out merit fee waivers. I emailed them back with a signed PDF of their form and a letter, so hopefully I'll hear back soon.

Didn't ask Florida or Florida St., so can't help you there.

Got UMN and BU this morning.

BC said need based only, Notre Dame said they update CRS once a month. Anyone heard from them this month?

No word from NW, Cornell, or Georgetown.

I checked and have hidden waivers from northwestern and michigan, already sent in NYU so I determine that. No email from nothwestern though, just the hidden waiver.

Is there a way to determine it without actually filling out the app first?

The only way I know of is to open the app, fill out the required sections, and then going to it like your submitting. If you know what schools your applying to, it shouldn't take too long, I just checked around 16 schools in 10 minutes, so its not too bad.



I also just received Ohio Northern University and Temple unsolicited.

Still waiting on Cornell here as well. I want so badly to go there, but I really would rather not pay the fee. Gah, I even customized my fee waiver beggar email just for the school.

Was BU unsolicited? I am feeling worse about my 167 since I don't have hidden waivers from Michigan or Georgetown. *sigh*

WAHHHHHHH

I've gotten so many fee waivers I just forgot who waived them and who didn't.
I paid $50 to W&M, immediately remembered I got a fee waiver, emailed LSAC before they processed my payment. Of course they responded after it was processed and said that, because it had been processed, there was nothing they could do.

At least it was one of the cheaper apps.

evergirl22, my BU was solicited. And I'm pretty sure Georgetown didn't give me a hidden waiver either.

Unfortunately, I'll only be able to get a merit waiver, as I was gainfully employed for all of last year. Is Stetson's only need-based, or is there a place on the form where you can apply for merit-based?

I don't know, I sent out the request before I took my LSAT, so I don't know. Just shoot them an email with your numbers and LSAC and see. No harm can be done. Even if they require a form of some kind, they'll send you a link to the form in their response.

For anyone who got a solicited BU waiver today, when did you send the request? I emailed them on New Year's Eve, but haven't gotten a reply yet.



12/28, maybe 12/29.

I solicited BU, got an out of office reply, then got an e-mail today about a CRS waiver. So, I think it should be treated as unsolicited; looks like they would have sent it whether I e-mailed or not. My e-mail was sent on 12-28 for what it's worth.

Unsolicited Indiana. I guess I'll scrimp on a couple hamburgers and see if they can convince me to move to Indiana.

My boyfriend seems to think I need to apply to ALL of the NYC schools. Because, according to him, it's one of the top places I'd like to live. I think he's mixing us up, or wanting me to want to live close to his hometown.

If they send me fee waivers I will. But...It's not my top choice for location. Too cold. Up there, but not top.
