Yeah, same. Solicited CCN + UT right after getting the score, with numbers over all their 75th percentiles, and they all gave me form letters that basically said wait for CRS. Did I do something wrong? Or are they being genuine about only giving them through CRS?

I've got all the T14 waivers minus HYS, NYU, Mich, and Boalt. Just sent emails soliciting though.

Anyone get any luck soliciting NYU? They sent me an email saying they don't give merit based waivers. Womp.

I'm a 3.25 179 and both Cornell and Vandy said CRS only, which is funny considering Michigan gave me one immediately.

Edit: Just got a solicited one from UVA as well.

Do T14 schools ever send unsolicited waivers to those with a sub-170 LSAT score? Because everybody I've seen so far here getting T14 waivers seems to have a 170 or above. Due to my numbers (168, 3.95) I'm going to have to apply to a lot of schools and see which ones will accept little ole reverse splitting me. But there's no way I can afford to do so without waivers, and a lot of the T14 don't seem to look too kindly on soliciting them.

As far as UT goes, I solicited on Monday night and they said the same to me, but I got a fee waiver through CRS in my e-mail this morning. :)

Also got one from William and Mary this morning.

We have almost identical numbers...hoping this isn't just W&M trying to be able to say they denied more people...

Got W&M too. Solicited from WUSTL yesterday (successful), no response from BU/BC/GW/Fordham.

Anyone know when the t14 will send them out?

After e-mailing most of the t14...

Columbia, Chicago, NYU, Penn, and Northwestern told me to chill and wait for CRS.
Berkeley and Stanford told me they don't offer merit-based waivers.

This morning, I got waivers from WUSTL (solicited), W&M (unsolicited), Texas (unsolicited), Michigan (solicited), and Georgetown (solicited).

Same.

Maybe this was answered somewhere (so, sorry), and I'm sure the answer is "no" (sorry again), but do unsolicited waivers really mean anything?

Our numbers are about the same. When did you get one from Penn/Northwestern?
