Naw, I think some of these law schools do crazy psy ops, where they give fee waivers to people they know they're going to auto-deny, just to make their selectivity look better, or something. Plus, a lot of these schools seem completely random in terms of how they hand out waivers - see how all over the board Columbia is. Even Illinois, who is admittedly totally cool for waiving everyone's app fee... sends out emails telling people they waived their app fee. It's all just either completely random, or subject to some extremely nefarious master plan whose overall design we'll simply never know.
