i am so pathetic

My transcript isn't in LSAC yet because I'm writing an appeal letter to my dean to try to get a grade removed that I feel was unfair. That's probably why I'm not getting some of these.


I didn't get it either. Only Duke and Santa Clara want me, apparently.


:( I feel like this warrants a "Take Courage!" meme.

Wow, GULC is definitely not being generous with the waivers this cycle.

I got the same one. I saw "UK Law" and I was like, "hey, I could go to law school in Britain!". I was disappointed.

With this comment I think Georgetown is being really inconsistent with their fee waivers. I was denied, several other posters were also denied with numbers that are well within/above admissions range for Georgetown.

Is there a fee waiver thread like this from last cycle that would inform us about when waivers were sent and for what #s last cycle?

Initially I also thought someone at Georgetown had thought "Hey, wouldn't it be fun to not look at numbers and just give every 7th person who emails us a fee waiver?" or something equally arbitrary. Then I looked back through the thread, and it seems like the non-URMs who are having success requesting fee waivers have both a GPA and LSAT at or above median.

Edited to fix grammatical ambiguity:)

Anyone else out there hoping for a Michigan fee waiver in the mail tomorrow? They were delivered last year right around this time...(though I also read that Michigan was pretty receptive to email requests).

When I went back and read it, for a moment I thought I'd actually said they were only giving non-URMs fee waivers haha. I think it's clearer now.

Yeah the title was weird, and then the "You have caught the attention of a distinctive law school" part was also kind of bizarre. So not only did this fee waiver make me feel special, it also made me feel a bit sketched out...

"Here at Regent, we're always watching you. ....Always."

Anyone else get this line? No?

Regent's fee waiver has made me paranoid about the patriot act...

Sorry. :( At least you won't be fretting alone! I've been fretting since 8/23 - the date fee waivers were sent out 2 yrs. ago. I may be a little obsessive about this...
