I was glad to see Valparaiso today. My e-mail had been too quiet lately.

Do schools typically wait until you have an official LSAC GPA before sending you waivers?

I took the LSAT in December 09 and got fee waivers without my LSDAS GPA.

I got an e-mail from an admissions director that I asked for a fee waiver stating that if you took the LSAT in February you need to re-register for CRS to be included in this year's pool of applicants. How does one "re-register" for CRS?

I put regional preferences for every state that the schools on my list were in. Got a waiver from every single one. I have no idea if it helped, but it obviously didn't hurt.

Oh this sounds promising. Obviously they don't mean changing your app year, because many of us have done it, to no avail. In fact, I did a little digging and found a thread bitching about being unable to update CRS from one year to the next. An unfortunate, but perhaps helpful, post included:

I got a bunch of fee waivers after I took the LSAT in December, and when I went to apply the following year many schools wouldn't carry the fee waiver over or give me a new one. Schools are especially stingy about requesting merit-based fee waivers early in the cycle - around November-December I started getting emails waiving the application fee from schools I had unsuccessfully tried to solicit fee waivers earlier.

I ended up just not applying to most schools that didn't waive the fee, especially safeties, unless I really wanted to go.

All you have to do is say you don't want to be part of CRS, save it, and then switch it back to yes

Can't be that easy. If it's that easy, I'm buying you a bottle of Glenlivet.

I've created an Excel chart of the fee waivers I've received. If OP wants to add the google docs link that'd be great. I set it so anyone can edit the document.

Alright, dumb question, how do you get fee waivers from these schools?

I reset CRS yesterday again as well and received Valpo last night. Not sure if the reset worked but here's to hoping.
