12 dollars to get 20 dollars??? As good a deal as any. Sending it in right now.

FTFY. Sucks for you guys, it was the same last year when it was only 12 dollars. I wish it were for something more worthwhile though, like, "20 for that booze shop down the road". Then I would apply multiple times.

Anyway, here is my question. If I receive a solicited fee waiver, what's the proper etiquette? Do I respond after receipt with a thank you email or just grin at the prospect of having saved myself $50? I don't want to wear out my welcome already with too many emails.


Over-thinking it, just say thanks and I look forward to applying.

I got this and was like, wow, really, Alabama? Where's your self-respect? Still not applying though I was tempted, lol. But then I remembered why I wasn't applying in the first place.

Any suggestions for waiver procurement for those of us taking Saturday's LSAT?
I want to be ready to get my applications in ASAP after scores are released, but certainly don't want to pay for them if I don't need to...
Do schools promptly send out new rounds of waivers after the test results are posted?
Should I immediately blanket the schools with solicitations once I have a score?

I'll trade you NYU for Columbia! Still holding out for the slim chance CLS will throw out a second wave, but I'll probably throw down the dollars by the end of the week. There must be some method..
