CLS fee waiver

Postby etlien » Sun Aug 15, 2010 8:01 am

Does anyone know when they usually hand them out? Before applications open? September?

Also, is a 3.74/171 likely to get one?

I don't know when they give them out but considering you're below median LSAT and at median for GPA I doubt you'll get one. Sorry :(

So far, Duke is the only one of the T14 to release anything. Columbia occasionally does hidden fee waivers.

Last year they were emailed on September 17. No idea what numbers got them, but you could search through last year's thread.

Anyone know if a 173/3.8 would get one?

Georgetown released a fee waiver? I didn't get this.

Yep, I got the email a while ago, on July 9.

Just go for it. Give it a shot. Email the admissions office and ask them. Say "I'm very interested in attending Columbia for etc etc reasons. However, at the moment the application fee puts my finances in a real pickle. Would you please consider awarding me an application fee waiver?" Something to that extent.

Good luck!
