FWIW, I did the forum sign up trick and it worked for me.

Haha, thanks. Yeah I remember someone saying a while ago that CRS only lasts for 1 year after registration, and there's no way you can extend the duration... hopefully they were wrong for your sake :cry:

There's someone with a 3.5/177 who didn't get one... so it's not just the LSAT


I'm 3.6+/170+ and I didn't get it. No transcript on file though.

It's funny that a fee waiver obviously given so they can reject me enrages you so.

In any case, it may very well be that you haven't received one yet since your transcript isn't on file with LSAC. Anyone can report false GPA ranges to LSAC so they aren't reliable.

this may be speaking because I am in your range....but thats not true. We are reverse splitters and thus you never know who will want us or what school we will get....just look at last years thread

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet:

I asked LSAC why I was not getting fee waivers--I got them last cycle (Dec 2009 LSAT). I had my CRS preferences set to "applying for 2010 cycle." I changed my info to "applying for 2011." I did not get a waiver for a week or so, but have since got waivers to Illinois and Duke (w/ PT). So make sure you have your CRS preferences set to the right year!

well thats a bit of a faulty statement. Just because everyone who got a waiver is posting does not mean that everyone has one....self-selected bunch will post my friend

You must be one of them. :lol:

... nevertheless, looking at the numbers of some of the people who have gotten waivers, it seems like a stunt for the school to increase its selectivity.

I hope my fee waiver isn't an "exclusive number booster" for them... had a target on Duke with my 168 3.88...

So for those who weren't receiving stuff previously...do we think it's the forum trick? Have you guys gotten anything else?

Registering for an LSAC forum. Seems like ppl who didn't do that are still getting it, so maybe Duke just used CRS properly.
