Anyone ever ask for a merit based fee waiver from penn?

Postby idfatq » Fri Oct 29, 2010 11:17 am

i understand you can just shoot emails to the admissions offices w/ your gpa/lsat, but penn's website's got this separate portion for asking the admissions office (http://www.law.upenn.edu/cf/adms/contactus/index.cfm), and under the fee-waiver asking part they seem to be only referring to need-based fee waivers, not merit-based fee waivers... for those of yall who've asked for merit based from them before, did you just write the request in this section or did you find an admissions email address somewhere?

thanks

I requested a merit waiver last cycle and was denied.

I eventually ponied up the cash, and they let me in.

I sent one this cycle and was denied. I just sent it to the main admissions contact e-mail on their website. I eventually decided it's not worth applying there.
