I got Chicago yesterday. Numbers are 164/3.76. Mexican-American URM. I've also recieved waivers from Duke and Cornell.
Do I really have a shot at these schools with my low LSAT?

Fee waivers from Duke, Virginia, Cornell, Georgetown, Vanderbilt.

But no love from Chicago here either - 175, 3.73.

To ensure our sanity, it would be so nice if the schools could include their respective search criteria when offering fee waivers.

Is submitting your application the only way to check this?

No, you can go to checkout and see then just Cancel. Payment options for the app fee will show up if you don't have a hidden waiver.

I should ask Georgetown, even though I think that'll be an automatic ding for me. I've e-mailed a ton of schools today, though.

Oh this is so tempting.... (resisting the urge to do this for all t14 schools I didn't get a fee waiver from)

And the only responses I've gotten have trended toward merit based waivers. Eh. I should have asked earlier. I think I'll wait and see what LSAC decides. If I don't get any, I'll go broke applying to schools.

OU and USD, both merit-based. I haven't taken the LSAT yet, so I can't apply for them. I applied for the LSAC need-based waiver, and OU said they accept that, so we'll see.

Does anyone know if you start an application if you are out of CRS at that school (since you are applying anyways, why would they need to give you a waiver?).
Or does it not matter. If it doesnt matter, would love to get a look to see if I have any hidden waivers.

I'm sorry, I have no idea what you're asking.

If I can get waivers from 1 or 2 of Columbia/NYU/Penn/NU I'll be so excited!
