Don't feel too bad. With Peace Corps (which got me like 15 waivers by itself) and a 3.85/170 Emory still rejected my request for a fee waiver.
Is Emory only giving out a bare handful of fee waivers or what (and if so, to who?)? Despite within a few hours of the school and having very strong numbers by almost any standard, they 100% denied my request for a fee waiver. Emory is the only law school that I plan(ned) on applying to that didn't grant me a fee waiver.
Does anyone know what's up with Emory's fee waiver policy?
Emory was really weird. They responded to my request by asking me for documentation of my LSAT score and a pdf of my transcript with my GPA. Haven't heard back since they requested that. My numbers aren't super impressive either: 167/3.8.
If I've learned anything from the past few months, it's that Emory doesn't have any idea what it's doing. With anything.
