LSAC's Coffers

Postby SemperLegal » Sun Jan 09, 2011 10:47 pm

How much did you all pay to LSAC in the course of applying to law school, to include LSAT fees, CRS registration, CRS transmittals, and application fees (I know that the application fees get forwarded to the LS, but humor me)

Comes to around $400.00 for me.

Don't forget that LSAC only gets the $12 for each application. The rest of the fee goes to the school. Most of their income comes from LSAT and credential assembly registration.

There's actually a place on LSAC you can view your transaction history. I'm at $677 and some change.

Oh well it is closer to $499 then. Including the fees to schools, 1420.95 :shock: No wonder I never seemed to be able to get more money in my bank account.

$1551. Runner up! Two application cycles, 3 LSAT's.

I'd like to know how much the CAS makes in total from that little $12 fee. Columbia gets ~8,500 applicants times $12 = $102,000 ????!!!!!

I dunno what the qualifications are to get that lsac fee waiver, but I was working part time my last year of undergrad and only showed like 12k on my w2s and I got 2 free lsats, free crs, 4 of the $12 things free and they sent be an lsat superprep book that was free too.

2 LSACs, applied to 14 schools, with fee waivers to all but 3 of them, man. I thought I was getting out of this cheap.

500 dollars, even.

That's not bad considering I applied to 20 (20!) schools. I didn't apply to any schools that didn't give me fee waivers (lookin' at you, Berkeley!)

And I only paid about 70 bucks on LSAT prep so I think I made it out okay.

Lol, don't feel too bad. I've paid them almost the same amount (5 dollars less) and I haven't even applied to any schools yet!
