Oh man are those still being given out?

I wonder how much that will mess with their yield, with all the people applying because ZOMG iTunes.

If planning on applying there it is a nice little extra; however, if not planning on applying there, one would pretty much be paying $16 for those 20 songs.

Which is a good deal. But there IS a disclaimer that's basically like "while supplies last"...

Anyone feeling any waiver love today? My email account is a little lonely compared to last week.

So far I've received UCLA, Wash U, Vanderbilt, BU, a hidden USC, and a few other lower schools that I don't want to apply to. (169/3.67).

Duke is one of my top choices, and I just completed my Duke app. Is it worth emailing asking for a fee waiver / priority track or should I just submit?

Send them the email, if you don't hear back soon then just submit.

How long did it take for them to respond? I emailed them last week...silence.

I emailed them last Wednesday. They emailed me back on Friday. I didn't write back to them until Yesterday around noon, and they wrote back to be at 7:41am today.

I can PM you the e-mail thread, but won't post it because it is embarassing how desperate some of my fee waiver solicitations are.

Anybody get fee waivers at GW or Fordham? Solicited or not? I'm above their ranges and am reluctant to apply if people have gotten waivers.

You could try Fordham need-based (unless you're rich). You just have to send a special app and your most recent w-2, or a paystub.

Do you mind sharing your info so I can compare and decide whether to submit my GW app or wait?

I'd suggest waiting another couple of days. I only got a 164 on the LSAT. My GPA is 3.89.

I'm Hispanic (non-URM)

Hope that helps... I've gotten waivers from a lot of schools but GW was one I was anxiously waiting for.
