Did it say if it was for LSAT or GPA?

Early next week, we will be mailing you an information packet that will include our view book, several brochures, and a Merit-Based Application Fee Waiver form. The deadline for the Merit-Based Application Fee Waiver is February 1, 2010. In order to waive your application fee, we will need to receive your fee waiver form along with the Certification Page of the law school application by the February 1, 2010 due date.


So it's kind of a pain if you're not sure about applying there



I don't think it is that hard. When you submit the application, you just select option 2 - that you will pay the school directly. This allows you to print the certification letter to mail in to USC along with your fee waiver form (once it is received). So all you pay to LSAC is the $12 report fee. It's not an application for a fee waiver - it is just a form to show the Law School that you received one.


Also, just got denied by Georgetown - 167/3.75

i contacted gtown over the break, but this appears to be unrelated as they blew me off a few days ago on that. numbers are low 170's, 3.8 ish

does anyone know if UT is still doing fee waivers?

also, did not specify if it was lsat or gpa, just said some crap about "obvious academic talent and background"

I also tried to solicit one from UT, they gave me a firm no and said its way too late for fee waivers.

Oops, sorry, should have been more specific! Denied a fee waiver. Not admission...at least, not yet!

I've gotten fee waiver emails from William & Mary (1/5), DePaul (1/6), Denver (1/5), Richmond (1/5), Temple (1/4), NY Law School (1/4), St. Thomas (1/5), Quinnipac (1/7), and Cardozo (12/30). W&M sticks out like a sore thumb... the other schools are a little more understandable.

I have a 164 LSAT with a 3.6 GPA (pre-med) at top 30 public school.

I emailed my two safety schools and asked them and so far only one response to say they were forwarding my email to the Dean of Admissions... ugh, I hate app fees!!

quinnipiac, st johns, appalachian today.

i want a cornell waiver! ahhh!

also, e-mailed USC a screenshot of my financial aid and they forwarded it to someone in financial aid and said give us a week. think i might just submit today and ask for a refund if they give me a waiver later. applying either way, i think.

Just got a solicited from San Diego. I applied a few days ago, and they won't refund. But at least it was a cheaper one.

I'm getting so freaking antsy. Anddd I just realized that the three main cities I've applied to schools in, the three places I'd most like to live... all suck. One has lovely weather but is 3000 miles from my entire family and my SO, one has eh weather and is close to SO, but their best school that isn't t5 is ranked 30, and the last has eh-too-hot weather, schools right at my level, and far from everyone (but not 3000 miles).
