What's the deal with Duke's priority track? Can I ask to be considered? Is that rude ? I'm seriously interested and visiting the school soon

I don't know if I meet the criteria (169, 3.9+). I took LSAT in December so I am not sure if I am even coming up in their CRS searches (though I got Mich so I know its POSSIBLE to find me in CRS). Or have I not gotten the invite because of my LSAT? Hmm

Any advice is much appreciated!!

PS- I just got the Cincinnati email/waiver too.

+1 for Cincinnati/waiting for Mich&Cornell. SLU was in my spam folder... full tuition scholarship would be nice. Does anyone know the numbers which will be considered for that? 3.4X, 17X here.

Just got Cincinnati via email. Also received Michigan fee waiver through snail mail today. I'm a Feb 2010 LSAT taker, but changed my enrollment date to Fall 2012, so for all of you wondering if they're checking . . . they are.

What the hell. I'm an Oct 2010 and then Feb 2011 LSAT taker, changed my enrollment date to 2012 a long time ago, and I have a 171. not a single fee waiver other than the ones I solicited.

Feb test-taker. Just got my Michigan waiver in the mail + hand-written note :).

I moved at the beginning of August and forgot to change my address, so it had to go through post office forwarding to get here.

Well, if you haven't heard back, then these waivers can't be sent out by merit alone.

I didn't get Cincy, but I did get an invitation to speak with a Cooley student!

Not sure, I haven't solicited any but have received them from Michigan, Mizzou, Nebraska and a few lesser known schools.

Mine said "We love X grads!" That was a pretty common one last year.

How does one solicit fee waivers? I see some people saying it worked for them upthread, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it.

Email the school's main admissions address, give your LSAT/GPA (or just LSAT if your GPA sucks), and ask for a merit-based fee waiver. Include your LSAC number.

I also received William and Mary, SLU, Cincinnati, and invitation to talk to a Cooley student-yay. (Feb LSAT)

Michigan State sent me something in the mail yesterday. They had previously sent a fee waiver (or maybe it was an invitation to apply), so not sure what yesterday's mail was.
