I did not get an email. I don't have a decision on my app yet though. What does it say?

Received one too, although I didn't apply. I didn't plan on applying to Minnesota, but after receiving the email I figured I would send in a fee waiver request.

I got no such e-mail and I'm still in review. I find this slightly disconcerting.

I received it and have not applied to Minnesota.

It looks much like all the other "Apply to X law school" emails that I've been receiving via the LSAC CRS.

I have been receiving a lot of e-mails from schools and I am starting to wonder if they just want me to apply so that their statistics show a large number of applicants (for instance, so they can say only 20% of applicants get in). For instance, fee waiver from William & Mary, University of Illinois, and University of Iowa but I only have a 162 and 3.68....Any thoughts?

My numbers are worse, getting the same number of e-mails. I am also a non-traditional URM as well.

Got it, weak. I emailed them a long message back asking about potential scholarship monies based on my figures. I figure if they're going to spam me, I'll spam back.

That is what I thought. Maybe I should spam back as well. I guess they do just want to up their numbers
