CLS wouldn't send you a waiver unless you had a decent shot.
100% not true. They don't know anything about you beyond GPA, LSAT, and URM status. Even then, non-URMs are getting waivers with numbers well below medians, heck, well below the 75th. I think all the low-number posters here are being realistic about their chances. FW has zero correlation to acceptance. It just means you get to ride for free so why not?
