I have a decent numbers and I haven't received any fee waivers in a couple of weeks so don't worry about it. I have a feeling the majority will come in late August and September.

I've sent out a few e-mails. I got fee waivers for:

Pitt
Penn State
Michigan State

The rest were a combination of:

-waivers sent out in the fall
-only need-based waivers
-we contact you if we want to give you waiver (aka: your numbers suck)

I took the LSAT last cycle and only got a fee wavier from UVa and a few schools I'd never heard of. None so far this cycle from any schools, so I'm assuming I'll get passed over in Sept too. Why do the other T14s not love me? :cry:

Well the problem for this year seems to be that people who took the LSAT last year dont show up on CRS searches. I tried to request consideration for Priority Track at Duke and basically was told that they invite people based on CRS searches and they have limited invites so they dont really do requests.

That's really irritating. Are they already sending out invites? I didn't get much any last year either, though, is the weird thing, when I should've been in their CRS searches last year.

No, they havent sent out invites yet but I knew I would have to contact them to even be considered because of the CRS problem. When did you activate your CRS access last cycle?

I got one from Albany a few days ago, I guess on 8/2? Anyway, I got a 153 on the LSATs.

Edit: Darn I forgot I got one from Valpo too, it was last Friday I think, so 7/30.

Thats really strange. I have similar numbers to what you have listed in your profile and I received a waiver from most of the T14s that offer them. I think the only one that offers them and didnt give me one was Cornell(altho im not 100% sure they offer them.

Which ones offer them?

ETA: Ah yes, our numbers are rather close.

I think that would depend on how long it has been since you sent the email. If it was 2 weeks ago or something I don't think it would be rude. If it was 2 days then you would probably come off as impatient.

Er I wouldn't. *shrug* If only because my experience with talking to ppl over the phone has been the person on the phone being extremely rude to me (I was asking a different, relevant question).
