Still no love. Columbia pretended to like me. NYU threw me a look. But Penn, well... sigh.

Picked up Ohio Northern and Northeastern via email today. Even though I hate Alabama, I want the 20 free iTunes songs they include with the fee waiver.

Have any residents/ alum of MN not gotten a Minnesota waiver? I'm both, and have numbers at/above their 75ths and even went to their prospective student tour. I haven't gotten one yet and am disappointed ( I even emailed and was told I'd have to wait for CRS searches).
After all the time & money I've given you, no fee waiver? Come on....

Also, I'm convinced NYU and Chicago are trying fervently to push up their GPAs (judging by those who received hidden waivers yesterday).

Almost in same boat as you. I think Residents get last priority, probably since they figure we'll apply anyway. =(

What is a hidden fee waiver? I'm guessing you find out when right before you hit the send button on the LSAC website?

Well, I'll just have to be patient and hold out for a waiver since I'm really not hoping to stay in MN. Would have been nice if I could have already applied/had a decent and cheap (w residency status, no need to move etc.) safety set up. Oh well... the saga continues.... :wink:

I'm a Minnesota resident (not an alum although I took a class there one summer) and I got a waiver on Monday actually. Maybe they're sending them in waves?
