I got a BC fee waiver on Oct 7. I asked them for one.

"This is a reply to your recent email regarding your request for an application fee waiver. You do not need to provide any further documentation as we have granted your request. Your fee waiver will be applied automatically when you submit your application through LSAC and no action is required.

We look forward to receiving your application."

I sent mine asking for one for military service

Do you remember how long it took for them to respond to you? I asked but haven't heard back.

UChicago is the only fee waiver of CCN on down I have yet to receive. Said they periodically review information from LSAC and send out waivers. Anyone know if they are likely to send out waivers in the next week to Oct LSAT takers or if I should just suck it up and pay the 100 bucks for Chicago?

I received an unsolicited merit-based waiver from BU on October 25th.

Seriously? Hidden or email?

Did you check for a hidden waiver? My waiver was on LSAC almost 2 days before I received any sort of notification email.

I'm sure BU's next wave will be coming out soon, but they're also really good about granting solicited ones. They e-mailed me back on the same day I sent my request and provided me with a fee-waiver.

Submit now, if you're ready. Don't wait. If you get a fee waiver later you should be able to get a refund from the school.


i believe this is only true for chicago, but still, submit now

BU is strange with waivers. They initially told me they didn't give them, then a month later they granted my request.

In no particular order of arrival, waivers @: UCLA, GULC, Duke (PT), UVA, Northwestern, UMinn, Will+Mary

Kind of sad that I've had no hiddens... makes me feel like I'm being deprived of a surprise present that everyone else got... haha.

Would love an NYU / Columbia waiver right about now.

I took the October LSAT and I got a Chicago waiver.
