I just got one from GULC as well.


Same here, I was kind of surprised - I assumed only schools out of the T-14 send these fee waiver offers. Are any other T-14 schools sending these out?

I just added my application year, so hopefully I'll start getting these. Anyone know if any of these will be not hidden: Michigan, Berkeley, Chicago, NYU, or Columbia?

Thanks!

All T-14 schools except HYS and Berkeley send out unsolicited fee waivers.

Chicago and Columbia all sent emails, the Michigan and NYU waivers were snail-mailed with a viewbook and showed up as a hidden waiver much earlier than the letter arrived, and Berkeley does not give merit fee waivers IIRC.

Also, I'm more than happy to help answer questions when I can, but all the information you guys could possibly need about when and how fee waivers come can be found in last year's thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=122246 (this link should probably go in the OP).

Where do you add the application year? I keep getting waivers telling me there are still seats available for 2011, I think they are confusing my application year or something.

Edit: Add William and Mary (mail), California School of Law (mail), Baylor (mail) to the list but they are all for the 2011 cycle.

What does it mean when they say it's hidden?

I don't remember where to add the application year, but no matter what you select you're going to get emails from (TTT) schools telling you there are spots still available for this fall. I set mine correctly when I signed up for CRS and still got them.

It means you get no notification about it, and it doesn't show up until you go to check out on LSAC. Here is a guide about how to check for these hidden waivers.

Edit - that's from last year. If the LSAC website has changed or if that doesn't work, could someone please let me know so I can update it for this year's applicants? Thanks!

Are the Georgetown waivers only going to people that took the LSAT in June so far?

It's under profile, CRS and then under "edit preferences" it's in the "additional academic information" section.

Looks like GPA in the high 3s and 170+

I'm in mid 3s with a 170 and didn't get a fee waiver yet. :/

I have a 174 but no official LSAC GPA (foreign UG) and didn't get the GULC waiver. I guess that's a bad sign for me. I'm not applying to GULC without a waiver in this economy.

I took my LSAT in Feb as well (with an official LSAC GPA). No waiver.

ETA: I also didn't get a GULC waiver today and I took in Feb.
