Woooooo! Just checked today, and I had a hidden Michigan waiver! :D

God I love you so much, Michigan, although I wish I had rated a letter.

Also, I might as well get off my lazy ass and send a request to WUSTL.

Aside from HYS, are there any other t14 schools which don't give our merit-based fee waivers? I'm taking the LSAT in October, and would like to know which applications I should wait on and which ones I should just go ahead and submit.


On Berkeley's website it says that they do not give out merit-based fee waivers. Here's what they say about fee waivers in general (posted on their FAQ page, http://www.law.berkeley.edu/47.htm )


Does Berkeley Law grant fee waivers? We will waive your Berkeley Law application fee if you were approved for an LSAC fee waiver. If you apply electronically, your application fee will be waived automatically. If you submit a paper application, simply include a copy of your LSAC fee waiver approval letter with your application. We do not provide merit-based fee waivers.

A limited number of application fee waivers are available to applicants who are current participants in public service programs (Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, etc.). For more information and to apply, visit http://www.law.berkeley.edu/39.htm. Please submit the Fee Waiver Request Form along with proof of participation to the Admissions Office. Be sure to read the instructions carefully. The deadline to submit an application with a fee waiver request is Monday, January 17, 2011.



But for me, UC Berkeley is a school worth paying $75 bucks for.

Cali needs to make up for the deficit somewhere. Why not from the pockets of unsuspecting 0Ls.

I wonder how much paper they waste stuffing every single law applicants mailbox with their solicitation junk mail.

romcomromcom and EDIT: Fixed. :oops: vegenator, you are inspiring me to be annoyed at UT! I didn't think they gave merit waivers but maybe they'll get around to the 168s... :?

hehehe I wasn't quick enough to edit withou insulting anyone :D I didn't mean to put you down JJDancer, you inspire me in ways you'll never know :wink:
I emailed U Texas back in late August about fee waivers, and they told me no, we only give need based fee waivers, bla bla bla, but then qualified it with the following:
"UT Law offers a limited number of merit-based fee waivers. If you are eligible, as an applicant you will receive an email from us before November 1, which is our deadline for fee waivers."

So, I'm wondering if 169 is the cut-off for this round of fee waivers, since 168 is their 75th? But, they say that Nov. 1st is their deadline, so maybe there's hope left that they'll extend some love to the 168ers? :D

FWIW, I'm at 170 and did not get a waiver.

I'm a 170, 3.6 identical numbers twin to you and I did not get a waiver either. What's up UT?
