I have the sneaking suspicion that I have numbers good enough to avoid fee waivers designed to increase selectivity, but not good enough to net me fee waivers designed to entice very desirable applicants. I judge this off of the lack of a UVA merit waiver at 168/4.0 and my own hurt pride. :(

here's the rundown on my foray into the fee waiver world. 3.1/170




Granted? Admissions Email
BC no response bclawadm@bc.edu
BU Yes bulawadm@bu.edu
UCLA Contact in Sept admissions@law.ucla.edu
Ucolorado Contact in Sept lawadmin@colorado.edu
Cornell No lawadmit@postoffice.law.cornell.edu
UF No admissions@law.ufl.edu
Fordham No lawadmissions@law.fordham.edu
GWU No jdadmit@law.gwu.edu
UGA no response ugajd@uga.edu
UIUC NA admissions@law.uiuc.edu
IUB No lawadmis@indiana.edu
UC Irvine NA
U Minnesota Yes
UNC No law_admissions@unc.edu
UT No admissions@mail.law.texas.edu
Utah Yes info@law.utah.edu
WUSTL Yes admiss@wulaw.wustl.edu
W & M Yes
Wisconsin No admissions@law.wisc.edu
Northwestern No admissions@law.northwestern.edu
UVA Yes lawadmit@virginia.edu

This school list might look ridiculous, but I have unique circumstances that, I feel, warrant applying to many schools. Only a few are "safeties," the rest I'd love to go to.

if i recall correctly:

GWU, Wisconsin, Florida and Fordham don't grant fee waivers. William & Mary and Minnesota were unsolicited, and "NA" indicates no application fee. U Colorado and UCLA asked me to resubmit my request in September.

UVA Dir. of Admissions send me an email in response to my request with some very kind words. I doubt my numbers are reasonable for UVA, but it was a very nice touch--much better than some schools who were, I felt, pretty unpleasant.

170/3.4: Got the UVA waiver. It's been a while since I've gotten a "good" waiver (or any waiver, for that matter), so I'm pretty stoked.

Still waiting on my request from Duke...

You're at a 75 and between a 25/median. Not exactly autoreject numbers.

You are right, that prediction may have been too negative. Wasn't planning on applying to UVA, but I suppose I will throw an app out there for $12.

Your LSAT score might have been a bit low for them. They probably had to think about it for a bit.
