Fee waiver for Northwestern

Postby MRAJ » Sun Feb 06, 2011 12:44 pm

I received a fee waiver from Northwestern and though my friend is telling me to apply for the hell of it, I am unsure if I should because my numbers aren't remotely close. Should I just apply any way since they waived the 100 dollar fee?

They sent a fee waiver now?

It's only $12, and otherwise you may always wonder what could have been.

I got it a while ago, but I disregarded it because I thought it was a sick joke. I guess I'll give it a shot.

I have to admit, I was in the same situation after getting a fee waiver to Columbia despite having scores lower than their medians. Would've gone for it anyway, except I don't think I could handle living in NYC.

You should apply. I got one and was accepted even though my lsat is not in NU range. If you really want NU interview if you can. It's only $12....why not?

Don't do it. I got one last year like last minute. They are doing this to boost selectivity.

I guess I'll put my twelve dollars towards a school who will actually consider me. Thanks for the help.

It might depend on really how far away you are from their numbers.
