This is my fifth I'll be making use of - those three (no PT at Duke though :( ), W&M, and Minnesota.

It was a while ago I think. You guys should just email them in late September. Fee waivers are like the one thing I don't trip out about :P. It's still waaaay early, relax people :). If you still haven't got a fee waiver by say...Sept. 15th then I would email them, but not really any sooner.

I haven't gotten Georgetown. Has anyone gotten one from GT by requesting it through email?

Stoked about UVA. Was surprised I got it, given my numbers. #1 choice too for law school. Non-resident. I didn't ask for a fee waiver either - I was about to until I opened up my email today.

3.88/161. Will be making use of this one and W&M so far.

Yep, I requested a renewal (I got it last year but didn't apply) and they sent one within a week.
I didn't think about possibly waiting until apps go live or about sounding anal by asking so early.
My logic was that I didn't want to bother them when they were being flooded with emails and phone calls about everything.

Oh yea, so far I've gotton: Georgetown, Virginia, Duke PT/waiver. I need to get more though, my ass is so broke.

Well, just got a response from Duke to my fee waiver request. Apparently they only issue fee waivers through CRS searches, and their next search will be in a few weeks. So hopefully I'll qualify for a waiver in their next search...

I e-mailed Virginia by directly replying to the fee waiver they sent me last cycle asking to have it for this cycle. Hopefully that works.

The problem with politely lying to people today is that you can verify statements with strangers on the interwebs. :lol:

It'd be funny if LSAC's programming is sloppy and UVA pays you $160 to apply.

What #'s are you going with for the ED? I've always considered it...

Hmmm... I'm 169/3.61/resident but didn't get a waiver. I wonder what else they look at?

I'm getting a lot of "we do not grant fee waivers unless you have a fee waiver from LSAC." for replies for waiver request.

Anyone else get this?

I got that from a few places. Not sure if it's the truth. UNC I remember...

I haven't sent anything to schools that haven't already sent out waves of waivers through CRS, but I know that YHS, Boalt, and I think UChicago don't give out merit-based waivers.

Would it be absolutely fruitless to ask for one from Davis/Hastings? I've heard that Davis supposedly doesn't give out merit-based waivers anymore, though I wouldn't be surprised if it were the same with Hastings, given how broke CA is.. :(

Did any of you guys send thank-yous back to whoever replied if you requested fee waivers & got them? Just got one from Georgetown :) Yay!

I wouldn't. For a normal person, it's a nice gesture, but for a secretary who handles hundreds of incoming emails...
