Also, what's the deal with Penn? They do CRS waivers? They have some form to fill out on their site, but it seems to be for need-based waivers.


Penn should be hidden sometime today or tomorrow.

NU is hidden, too. If we're going by the previous cycles, expect it to appear in 3 days or so.

I got WUSTL and W&M this morning too, and I emailed Virginia.

I want a fee waiver for UCLA... how do they usually handle fee waivers?

I got one on September 14th by e-mail. Looks like last year after the LSAT they e-mailed one out on the Monday after. Keep a look out.

I just got a second email waiver from UVA. I'm wondering if applying twice would help my odds.

LOL, UVA, WUSL, W&M, BU fee waivers by email today even with my stupid 168 score. What the heck, I'll apply and not eat out a couple times. It's only $12 each.

Yes, but I'm not sure it was CRS, I think it was due to a conversation I had with their representative at the Chicago LSAC forum. At least, that's what it sounded like.

Maybe this is a dumb question (new poster), but what address do I email to ask for a fee waiver? I'm trying to get the Cornell app out for EA today, which means I can't really wait around for them to email.

+1. I have been to Bloomington and it is nothing but corn and more corn, but if they think I may be worth a look then I might just send an application their way. LSP says I have a decent chance, so who knows.

I believe Cornell doesn't give them via email but does apply it retroactively, meaning if you submit and happen to get an email from them 2 weeks later or something, then they will refund it.

They use CRS, though I didnt get one (after first round of waivers were sent out) and I emailed them and asked, and received one within a day. My GF also emailed and asked and they said no. As I guess as long as you are within certain numbers, they may give you one.

Thanks! Maybe not the right thread, but how many others are doing EA at Cornell?
